County revenues fall short of spending

County Manager Tom Garrett presented an overview Tuesday night of the county’s General Fund finances in preparation for the 2016 budget.

For the past two years, the county’s expenditures tracked closely with budgeted amounts, but revenues fell short, Garret said.

Garrett identified several areas where the county consistently falls short, including emergency 911 services, solid waste and impact fees.

The county manager also provided a breakdown of landfill costs, and how those might change if the county were to accept a settlement with the East Georgia Land and Development Company to allow a private company to take over operation of the landfill.
