Greeneville To Make Appropriations, Even If County Does Not

The Town of Greeneville's appropriations to organizations which Greene County also funds will be made as planned, regardless of potential cuts to the amount the county provides.

That was the message Tuesday from Greeneville Mayor W.T. Daniels and City Administrator Todd Smith prior to action on the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen's regular agenda.

At the meeting's start, Daniels commented briefly on the Town's budget development process for fiscal year 2014, thanking the board for their participation, and specifically commending Smith and Town Recorder Carol Susong for their work.

The new budget is different, the mayor noted, in that it was finalized prior to the June 30 end of fiscal year 2012-2013. That means it was able to go into effect on July 1 -- the first day of fiscal year 2013-2014.

Fiscal year 2013-2014 also marks the first time in recent memory that the Town's contributions to joint ventures do not match funds provided by the Greene County government, Daniels said.

"We've always based our contributions on what our county does. And this year, we're going to break that tradition -- if it's agreeable with the board, of course," he said.

"Those monies are there. We're going to make our contributions as we have approved, regardless of what the county does."

Those joint ventures are the Greeneville-Greene County Public Library, Kinser Park, the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad, 911, the Greeneville-Greene County Demolition Landfill and Transfer Station, and the Greeneville-Greene County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

At this time, the county's Budget and Finance Committee , which is struggling to deal with a large anticipated county budget deficit for 2013-2014, is recommending cuts of 6 percent or more to those entities, with the exception of Kinser Park, which may not receive any funds from the county for fiscal year 2013-2014.

"I just think it behooves us as a city to continue those contributions we budgeted for. We do still have a balanced budget," Smith told the board.

"Especially in these tight times the county's going through -- tight budget issues -- any kind of maintenance-of-effort we can maintain at the city with their funding will probably be extra critical for these organizations," Smith said.
