The county Board of Supervisors discussed but did not take any action to approve changes to the county 2001-2002 budget during a hearing Monday.
The 2001-2002 budget was adopted last year when a two-year budget was approved.
The original budget called for $123 million in revenue and $126 million in expenses. The proposed changes are $126 million in revenue and $133.7 million in expenses. The changes reflect a .6 percent increase in revenue and a 2.6 percent increase in expenses over last year's budget.
The proposed changes include:
· $817,000 for the county garage for vehicles and tools,
· $289,000 to the Office of Employment Training for upgrading computers and buying maintenance trucks, tools and office equipment,
· $198,800 to lease three fire trucks and hire two additional fire captains,
· $167,379 to reorganize the county executive office,
· $111,058 to hire two animal control officers, including equipment they will need.
