Contingency budget is used to fund secretary, librarian jobs

A contingency in the 2011 proposed budget for McDuffie County is quickly dwindling down.

The budget had called for a contingency in the amount of $42,460, according to McDuffie County Manager Don Norton.

Originally, commissioners had planned not to dip into the contingency fund unless absolutely necessary.

Unfortunately for commissioners, such a time already has arrived.

During last Tuesday night's commission meeting, it was learned that two part-time positions needed funding -- a secretary at the McDuffie-Warren County Unit of the Georgia Forestry Service and a librarian at the Thomson-McDuffie Library. At the meeting, commissioners agreed to fund both requests.

As a result, it now has caused the contingency fund to dip down to $36,000.

The general fund shows a projected revenue amount of $12,350,174, Mr. Norton said.

"It's a 1.4 percent increase from 2010," he pointed out.

Commissioners are forecasting a project revenue from all funds of $28,892,706 and proposed appropriations in the amount of $28,850,246.
