Dumpster Diving: Some usable stuff behind annex

There is also cookware, photos and a lot of other odds and ends - JMC

By Joyce Coomer writes:

If anyone needs some size 30 jeans, there are several pairs in the dumpster behind the courthouse annex. The only thing I see wrong with these jeans is that they need a good washing.

There are also coats and household items.

The garbage pickup from this dumpster is early morning so if anyone wants to retrieve any usable items, you need to come down tonight. - Joyce M. Coomer

City of Columbia, KY adopts 2014-15 fiscal year budget

Budget has two fewer positions, one in sanitation and one in the Columbia City Police Department. Vote is 5-1, with Councilor Charles Grimsley's no vote a protest against allocation for Parks & Recreation. Mayor Harris told council that city has lost $300,000 in revenue during his term, and appoints Councilors June Parson, Craig Dean, and Robert Flowers to committee to revisit and recommend ways to increase revenues.
Click on headline for complete story with summary chart of the budget
Budget Highlights The budget for Fiscal Year July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015 at a special called meeting Tuesday, June 24, 2014. The budget is termed a balanced one, but the General Fund is balanced by a reduction in the fund balance carried forward, as is, to a lesser extent, the City Gas Department. The vote was 5-1 for the budget. Councillor Charles Grimsley voted no, as a protest against a meager $14,626 outlay for Parks & Recreation. The largest component of the General Fund budget is for police, $1,052,958; followed by $430,026 for general government; streets get $269,357; then $110,565 for fire; and $14,626 for Parks and Recreation. The budget shows increases in fund balances for Sanitation and slightly over $100,000 drop in fund balances for the Gas Department.
By Ed Waggener
