A budget for Livingston County totaling $9.948,932 in expenditures was approved by the County Commission Thursday morning. That budget includes $2.1 million dollars for levee repairs that will pass through the county’s accounting system. Budget Officer Sherry Parks told the Commission the budget includes Federal and State grants that help the county in several ways.
The budget does include a 3% Cost of Living Adjustment, and the elected officials will receive the same increase on their salaries.
Presiding Commissioner Ed Douglas says the County lost a source of income due to a change in legislation.
With the budget for the county approved, a copy will be filed with the state of Missouri.
