Although there were concerns last week about whether or not Massac County would be able to make its payroll, at Tuesday morning's commissioners meeting, the board learned from Deputy County Treasurer Cheryl Nix the $125,754 payroll had been paid, leaving the county with little over $37,000 in the general fund.

Nix said with the reimbursement from the county highway department of a little over $21,000, the general fund balance was boosted to $59,227.

The commissioners asked if any bills were paid last week. Nix thought about $19,000 had been paid. She was filling in for County Treasurer Floyd Sullivan, who was not at work because of health issues.

On the topic of bills, Massac County Sheriff Ted Holder brought his most current list of unpaid bills to the commissioners. Holder pointed out his list of unpaid bills is now at $97,000 and said the department has been getting letters and phone calls from vendors threatening to cut the department off. Commissioner Jayson Farmer explained next week the commissioners would be deciding on whether or not to borrow more money.
