AUDIO: Branch County Commissioners use fund surpluses to balance 2014 budget

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - With help from their current fund balance and the delinquent tax revolving fund, Branch County Commissioners have been able to balance their 2014 budget.  The board yesterday approved the transfer of about $950,000 from those two funds to cover the budget shortfall for next year.

Branch County Administrator Bud Norman says county officials were cautious about not transferring too much money out of those funds, because of some uncertainties on the horizon, like funding for the county's pension fund, the effect of the new Affordable Healthcare Act on insurance premiums, and the aging infrastructure of buildings like the county jail and courthouse..


The new budget takes effect January 1, 2014.
