Two Down and One to Go

Your County Council has approved two readings for the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 budget requests.  By South Carolina law, counties must pass a balanced budget by June 30 each year.  On June 9, 2015, Council gave second reading approval to a balanced County operating budget of $49,349,943.  Included in the new budget proposal is a change in the EMS services, a COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) for employees, and funding for other agencies to include the Sumter County Library.  The budget is balanced which includes 2 additional mills for the aforementioned items.  County Council is scheduled to give third and final reading on the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 operating budget requests at its next meeting on June 23, 2015.
