The Fayette County Board has approved the county’s budget for the Fiscal Year 2016. The budget was passed with 12-1 vote at a special meeting, with one member not present.
The budget that the board passed is balanced, and that’s thanks to a carryover of more than $120,000 from the previous year. Board Chairman Jeff Beckman said that the budget would have been in the negative without the carryover.
A public hearing was held prior to the Board’s vote.
