We have a budget!

After three long months of meetings, some with staff, others with County Council and staff which includes extra budget workshops, we now have an approved balanced budget for Sumter County operations.  County Council at its regular meeting scheduled on June 13, 2017, approved third and final reading for Sumter County Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Budget Ordinance #17-866 with revenues and expenditures in the General Fund of $51,394,154. 

The key components in the FY 2017-18 Budget are important personnel related items such as a mandatory increase in retirement contributions, a mandatory health insurance increase, and a 3% Cost of Living Increase for its 600 County employees.  There was also a $2.5 million Capital Bond request approved for annual department capital needs to include the Sheriff’s Office vehicles, Public Works’ vehicles and equipment, and Information Technology upgrades, along with other equipment used to perform daily tasks in County Government.  All of these items and more were approved without a tax millage increase!

Many thanks to County Council for their staff support and other Department Heads who work hard to deliver a quality service to the citizens of Sumter County.
