Commissioners say no to increases for sheriff, library, fairplex and more
The Uvalde County budget is getting closer to being balanced after a workshop held Tuesday evening, when commissioners removed several budget requests in an effort to shrink the gap between projected expenses and revenue in the general fund and road and bridge fund.
All other funds are balanced.
This is the third budget workshop held, following the release of a proposed budget draft containing initial revenue projections totaling $29,642,373 and expenditures of $30,398,477.
At the start of the budget workshop on Tuesday, the general fund had a deficit of $189,155 and the road and bridge fund had a shortage of $361,626.
To finalize the proposed budget, county commissioners are waiting for certified property tax values from the Uvalde County Appraisal District.
They are expecting to receive the data by late July, upon which another budget workshop will be held before a balanced budget is adopted.
Despite not having final numbers, Uvalde County Judge Bill Mitchell recommended the financial team begin the trimming process based on the information that was available.
