County Adopts Budget of $3.5 Million; Suspends Funding for Extension Office

The Douglas County Commission approved a budget on Jan. 12 that calls for total expenditures of $3,546,000 and revenues this year of $3,095.424. A fund balance at the end of 2011 of $622,858, however, gives the county total funds available of $3,718.282, and an anticipated ending balance of $171,500.

One of the most noticeable cuts made in the 2012 budget is the elimination of the County University of Missouri Extension Office.

If the county does not fund Extension, the office will be closed and all services of that office will be suspended.

The Budget Message is a summary of the county budget and reflects anticipated revenues and expenditures in the General Revenue Fund and the Special Road and Bridge Fund.

In addition, there are various other funds that provide specialized funding in specific areas, such as the Assessment Fund of $44,000, the 44th Judicial Drug Court Fund of almost $59,000, and the Title III (Firewise) Fund of just under $36,000.
