County cuts more donations to nonprofits
Placeholder Image
The county’s Policy and Personnel Committee met Tuesday night to decide on funding for local nonprofits.As commissioners discussed the requests for the 2011-12 fiscal year, it quickly became obvious a shaky financial future has necessitated further cuts to a segment of the county budget that has already seen significant reductions.In the 2010-11 budget, the county contributed a total of $98,543. The 2011-12 total is currently set at $82,200, a reduction of $16,343. However, this is only the preliminary figure, as the contributions still have to go through the Budget and Finance Committee before becoming part of the final budget.
