Angelly brought a report of the county’s general fund dating back to the first of February, and the report indicated a general fund balance of $43,628, with the county’s payroll this week at $105,500. She said even with the reimbursement of about $20,000 from the county highway department and with local fees from the State’s Attorney’s and Circuit Clerk’s offices, there would be a shortfall of about $22,000.
Last week the commissioners discussed the idea of pursuing another anticipation warrant. In January 2013, the commissioners borrowed $350,000 from a bank to catch up on bills until the property tax money was received. More recently, the commissioners borrowed $60,000 three months ago.
County Clerk John Taylor said another option would be the worker’s compensation liability fund.
