County approves provisional budget for 2021

The Lake County Commission has approved its provisional budget for 2021.  During their meeting Tuesday, commissioners reviewed and approved the more than nine-point-six-million dollar budget after holding their budget hearing.    

County Auditor Paula Barrick told commissioners that the provisional budget did not have any changes in it from what they had reviewed at their previous meeting.  

The bulk of the budget includes close to five-point-three-million dollars in the county’s General Fund, and just more than three-point-three-million dollars in the county’s Road and Bridges Fund.  

The county’s 2021 budget is scheduled to be adopted at the commission’s next meeting on September 17th.
