County budget set
June 29, 2023
The Sweetwater County Board of County Commissioners recently approved the final fiscal year 2023-2024 budget for the county after grappling with decisions about reserve funds, the impacts of Senate File 60, and Cost of Living Adjustment increases.
Increased revenues and cash carryover
During the June 20 Budget Workshop, the last workshop before the final budget was approved, Sweetwater County Accounting Manager Bonnie Berry told the commissioners the budget was currently at a shortfall of $15,335,984, but that did not include the county's cash carryover of roughly $26 million.
