December 14, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Tuesday, the Jefferson County Commissioners adopted the county's final operating budget for 2012, which calls for no tax increase.

It was amended only slightly from the proposed budget, which was advertised three weeks ago.

According to Director of Finance & Human Resources Debby Hackett, she anticipated a deficit of $53,752 at the end of 2012 in the proposed budget; however, some changes were made in both "increased revenues, and some reduction in expenditures," slashing the deficit by about $13,000, she said.
