County OKs $21 million budget

September 13, 2011

Howard County commissioners approved the proposed 2011-2012 budget Monday on a unanimous vote, giving the nod to a fiscal plan worth approximately $21 million.

According to County Judge Mark Barr, the budget suffered a number of cuts during this year's planning sessions, but will allow the county to make it through the coming year.

“We lost some state funding — not nearly as much as the school districts, but enough to be felt — this year, so we had to make up for that in the budget,” Barr said. “We lost about $30,000 in state money.”

One departmental budget that took a heavy hit this year is the county library, which saw its book budget cut by $5,000 and its books-on-CD and DVD budget cut from $5,000 to $3,000.
