Lake County’s Board of Commissioners approved supplemental budgets following a public hearing held during their Wednesday, Dec. 18, regular session.
The supplemental budget process is deemed necessary when expenditures exceed 10 percent of the original budgeted figures, said Lake County Treasurer Ann Crumrine.
Four funds received unanticipated additional dollars from the state and/or federal level following the original budgeting process last spring. The public hearing process allows for public comment prior to the passage of the necessary resolutions.
There were no public comments on the resolutions as presented, for which appropriation totaled $458,167.
