Callaway County Cuts Budgets, Keeps Employees

8 years 7 months 2 weeks ago Friday, September 03 2010 Sep 3, 2010 Friday, September 03, 2010 4:12:35 AM CDT September 03, 2010 in News

FULTON - Callaway County officials say they're creating a budget for the next year without having to let any employees go. Officials believe they'll have around the same amount of money, $13.2 million, in their budget next year as they did for 2010.

"Everybody knows what the financial situation is, they've done a really good job of watching their budgets in 2010 and I don't think we're gonna have any big surprises of big expenditures for 2011 that we don't know about," said  Callaway county auditor Rosemary Gannaway.

Gannaway prepares the budget for commission approval, and says the hardest part is trying to anticipate how munch money will come in. County officials must submit their budget requests to Gannaway by September 10th.

One of the commissioners that has to approve the budget is Presiding commissioner, Lee Fritz. He said that he tries "to stress to every department the importance of getting by with the least amount of money as possible, especially in these economic times." 

The County Commissioners normally have to approve the budget by the beginning of January, but because of the election in November, the deadline has been pushed back until the end of January.
