Stephens approves 2011 budget

By Jessica Waters
The Toccoa Record
Thursday, July 1, 2010 1:31 PM EDT

 
 

In a unanimous vote at Tuesday's meeting, county commissioners adopted the Fiscal Year 2011 budget totaling $20.5 million.

The expected revenues and expenditures within the general fund for the adopted FY 2011 budget are $14,634,037.

The special revenues fund budget is $1,022,450, the enterprise fund expenses and revenues are budgeted at $1,422,400 and the capital projects fund is budgeted at $3,460,735.

The budget calls for no change in the property tax millage rate, which will remain at 11.32.

 

There are no furlough days for county employees included in the FY 2011 budget, and the adopted budget also calls for no changes in the number of county personnel.

The current, FY 2010 budget included 12 furlough days for county personnel.

There were no public comments on the budget from residents during the June 15 public hearing nor the second public hearing held before Tuesday's regular meeting prior and the vote to adopt the budget. "We are really glad to get finished with the process," said commission chairman Dean Scarborough.

"This budget does not include any tax increases and, thankfully, it does not include any furloughs for county employees. We again thank you, employees, for the suffering you did last year with the cuts we had to make, but that helped us be on a little firmer footing this year."

The FY 2011 budget will go into effect today - Thursday, July 1.

CELEBRATE DYI YOUR WAY

 

Today we are watching every penny we spend. With all the changes in the economy we are now learning we can actually do alot of things ourselves. DYI is coming alive more and more.

We are learning to clean our own homes, mow our lawns and actually do some of our own home improvements.

With home improvements in mind, kitchen and bath should be the foremost in our minds bringing the most return for money spent. The kitchen and bath areas are the most used areas of a home and should get the most attention.

We have all changed our hardware to spruce up the kitchen and bath but what about changing out worn cabinet doors and drawer fronts. The actual layout and cabinets are in good shape. Most cabinets built 20 years ago are much better built than what we can purchase today. The constant use of the cabinets doors and hinges do wear out and nothing dates a home more than old looking cabinet doors and drawer fronts

Need a Break...Take the Choo-Choo to NE Georgia and Enjoy the ride.
Linda Scofield

 Need a Break..Take the Choo-Choo to NE Georgia and Enjoy the ride. The train departs the Atlanta Amtrak Station at 8:15 PM each evening headed for NE Georgia. Don't eat before you board, you will want to enjoy dinner in the dining car, the menu is aways great and you meet interesting people from all walks of life. I have been enjoying this ride for 2 years. Beats fighting the traffic. It is totally stress free.

After spending time to relax and rejuvinate in the beautiful foothills of of NE Georgia, I take the return back to Atlanta at 6:15 AM. Great to get up early and enjoy the sunrise eating breakfast in the dining car and checking out all the wonderful little towns you would miss by driving the interstate. Try it sometime, you will find there is lots to do up in them hills of NE Georgia.
