Jackson County Finances Okay; Budget of $306 Million
Jackson County Commissioners unanimously approved a $306 million budget Wednesday and indicated the count if on firm financial footing.
Commissioners credited County Administrator Danny Jordan and other staff members for management that has helped the county weather an economic downturn and cuts in federal payments to counties.
The county has gone from having to pull $10 million from its reserves, to adding $7 million to the reserves. The $306 million budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 is up from the current $301.9 million.
