The Board of Commissioners will conduct a Public Meeting on Monday, September 30, 2013 beginning at 9:00 a.m. for the exclusive purpose of taking action on a number of financial issues relative to the Garrett County Public School System.
This review and subsequent approval by the Board of County Commissioners will include authorization and designation of Fiscal Year 2013 carryover funds and the appropriation level of County funding for Fiscal Year 2015.
On September 23, the County Administrator and Department of Financial Services staff received financial documentation and justification from the School System that was requested relative to non-recurring costs, justification for the actual carryover amount, and an analysis of supplemental one time needs. The County Administrator and Department of Financial Services staff are evaluating this information which will be combined along with overall comprehensive County Government revenue projections. This information will be presented to the Commissioners prior to a final determination during the September 30, 2013 Public Meeting.
The Board of County Commissioners will also hold their regularly scheduled Public Meeting on Tuesday, October 1, 2013 beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Questions on this matter should be addressed to Monty Pagenhardt, County Administrator.
