Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Needs Funding Next Week
The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office needs full County Commission approval for additional funding by next week. Sheriff Wayne Anderson needs 1.5-million dollars for the next fiscal year. He and his staff submitted a revised budget to the County Commission’s Administrative Committee for 9.4-million to run the Office and 8.5-million to operate the jail. He says his department has seen a significant increase in call volume and the jail population has continued to increase while fuel and medical expenses have also gone up. The Budget Committee is already considering an extra 637-thousand dollars for the current budget year and the sheriff has converted several purchased vehicles to leases and postponed some payroll expenses into next year cutting the deficit 180-thousand. Action on the budget has been postponed so now committee members will study the sheriff’s new budget and meet next month to discuss and vote. The county’s finance office was requested to attend the next meeting to answer questions and provide revenue projections for next year. (bg)
