The Pottawatomie County Commission went over the proposed general-fund budget for fiscal year 2021 during their meeting Monday.
As it stands right now, the county’s 2021 budget will be about $34.1 million, down from their 2020 budget of about $34.4 million.
The mill levy will be about 27.7 mills, down from about 28.2 mills in 2020.
Pottawatomie County financial officer Heather Gladbach explains why:
The county is also looking to create a plan for future capital equipment expenditures, which consists of each department making a list current inventory and potential future equipment requests and estimating when certain equipment will need to be replaced.
Gladbach says these lists will change over time.
The county commission will meet with various departments over the next couple weeks to discuss specific parts of the budget.
They will also hold a public hearing for the 2021 budget on August 10.
