Step two consisted of a fund transfer of $36,000 from transfer out to transfer in.
“A few years ago, we started moving this over because we knew we would have a payment for upgrades of contract of service on the voting machines,” Aultman said. “Every year it is built into the budget, and we are just getting to that point where we put “x” amount of dollars over into that fund to cover future costs.”
A revenue and appropriation increase for the Darke County Commissioners’ Airport, the 2021 FAA Airport Improvement Grant, increase in County Share for Administrative costs is a $500 estimated revenue increase and an appropriation increase of the same.
