Budget talks continued at a June 25 meeting of the Banks County Board of Commissioners that included a debate over funding sources.
Funding in the 2013-14 budget for some needed items was the topic of discussion that caused contention between the commissioners. The commissioners disagreed on purchasing some of the items out of the capital account instead of including it in the proposed budget.
The budget is made up of current year’s revenue collections – including property taxes, and the capital fund is money that has been or will be carried over from the previous year or years to be used for county purposes.
One item discussed by the commissioners that caused disagreement on how it would be funded, was computer hardware and software upgrades.
