County to consider budget-continuation resolution

Posted

While plans are being made for Bradley County’s 2019-20 budget, steps are also being proposed to keep the county’s business running smoothly past the June 30 end of the current fiscal year budget.

County Mayor D. Gary Davis presented a budget continuation resolution to the Bradley County Commission during Monday’s work session. He said the resolution needs to go on next week's voting session agenda.

According to the resolution, “the Bradley County Commission has been delayed in collecting information necessary to definitely establish a final budget for fiscal year 2019-20 prior to the commencement of such fiscal year on July 1, 2019 …”

The resolution provides “for the uninterrupted operation of the government of Bradley County by the continuation of the existing budget for fiscal year 2018-19 and until a firm budget for the fiscal year 2019-20 can be finally established.” This type of resolution is usually approved annually.

In other business:

• Commissioner Thomas Crye placed on next Monday’s voting session agenda a resolution to rezone from Rural Residential (R1) district to Forestry/Agricultural/Residential (FAR) district property located at 137 Jonathan Drive S.E. The rezoning was recommended by the Bradley County Regional Planning Commission.

Also, litter was picked up and brush cut at Fort Hill Cemetery.
