Hamilton County tracking over budget
Hamilton County Commissioners are set to review the 2013 budget Monday.
A quarter of the way through the year, administrators say the county is projecting over budget.
General fund expenditures are projected to be $5.3 million over. In a memo to commissioners, Budget Director John Bruggen attributes the overage to several departments - primarily the Sheriff and Prosecutor's offices - projecting well over budget.
General fund revenues, meanwhile, are coming in slightly higher at half a percent over projections. At this rate, Bruggen says the county is on track to draw down general fund reserves by $1.5 million more than anticipated.
