Sullivan County Mayor Struggles With The Budget
The Director of schools in Sullivan County wants the commission to provide more cash flow. Doctor Jubal Yennie blames increased expenses for the system having to do more with less. Next year's budget is under construction and indications are that more money from the county will be needed. Needs include bond pay backs, infrastructure improvements and pay raises mandated by the state for teachers and staff which name health care and retirement. Sullivan County Mayor Steve Godsey is not optimistic concerning a yes vote to increase taxes. As he deals with the budget he says he is looking for other ways to meet the needs of both the school system and the Sheriff's Department. At the request of Sheriff Wayne Anderson, the state comptroller’s office will audit Sullivan County’s financial records to determine why the county books are not consistent with those at the Sheriff’s Office.
