No Progress In Budget Shortfall Talks
The Sullivan County Budget Committee and the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department are no closer in solving their budget shortfall problem. At a recent meeting of the Budget Committee and Sheriff Wayne Anderson, the session evolved into finger-pointing and casting blame to each side of the issue. Anderson says his budget has not increased in seven years while basic expenses for jail operations such as food, fuel, and medical expenses for prisoners have gone through the ceiling. The sheriff pointed to the County Commissions $20 million reserve as a solution. Budget Committee chairman Eddie Williams said the figure was $6 million and that there was a present cash flow problem with County government that might require drastic year end budget cuts. Anderson told the meeting that he could sue for funding, and would likely win. He said however he would prefer to work with the County Commission for a reasonable settlement.(CS)
