May 27, 2020
The Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District Budget Committee last week approved an increase of about 2.6 percent in General Fund expenditures for fiscal 2020-21.
Committee members met May 19 to consider the proposed budget. With their approval, the budget moves to the district Board of Directors for a public hearing and adoption on June 16.
The district’s General Fund will grow about 5 percent, with the district carrying over $1.1 million, about $80,000 more than it did last year and about $90,000 more in property taxes for total revenue of $3.6 million, up from $3.4 million.
