Please be advised that the information that was in Perry County newspapers entitled “Budget deficit of $2.78 million will be covered by reserves” December 10, 2020 is not accurate.
The commissioners did not make the statement “The deficits could be covered with the county’s reserve funds, which total $14.7 million, the commissioners said.”
Further there was no statement made by the Board of Commissioners that led to the statement “The budget for next year holds the line on taxes, with projected revenue at $19.1 million.”
The Perry County Board of Commissioners are researching options, gathering statistics, and looking at options before making knee jerk reactions. At this point, the Perry County Board of Commissioners have not decided on what action will be taken on this matter until all information we are seeking is accumulated.
From this date forward, the Perry County Board of Commissioners will publish further accurate official information concerning this subject on the County website Perryco.org.
