Council adopts FY2014 budget

-A A +A
By Arin McKenna

After more than four hours of discussion, the Los Alamos County council adopted a budget for FY2014.

During the evening's discussions, council added $378,565 to the $185.9 million proposed by staff.          

The additions included $93,000 for community services. Council took out proposed reductions to Senior Center services, Youth Activity Center operations and the summer concert series. They also voted to fund Bear Camp at the current level and added $40,000 to the budget for Cooperative Extension Services in order to fund the home economics position at a three quarter time level.

Council also transferred $300,000 from the general fund to the FY2014 indigent healthcare fund budget in order to maintain basic services. A more in depth discussion on how to address reduced revenues and increased demand on the indigent fund is scheduled for April 30.

The only reduction to the proposed budget was  $15,000 from the county council's budget for contractual services.
