Douglas County Budget Exceeds $4 Million; Expenditures Inflated by Rome Bridge Project

The Douglas County Commission approved and signed the 2014 county budget this week.
This year’s budget calls for expenditures of just over $4 million. However, that amount, which exceeds last year’s budget by almost $600,000, is inflated by the Rome Bridge project that will involve replacement of the 100-year-old steel bridge across Beaver Creek.
The county has budgeted $900,000 for this project that is totally funded by federal money.
The county started the year with a balance of $548,577 and, after spending $4,023,426, expects to finish the year with a balance of about $328,500.
The Budget Message summarizes the revenues and expenditures from the various funds:
