Cridersville council OKs amendments to budget

CRIDERSVILLE — Cridersville Village Council approved amendments to a prior resolution that made permanent appropriations for village expenditures during fiscal year 2014 at a regular council meeting Monday night.

With a vote of 5-0 with one absence, council passed Resolution 2241 for the purpose of adding an additional $10,000 to the park fund for repair and maintenance, as well as $2,200 to the police department for insurance and bonds. Council also approved $5,000 for community salaries, $3,500 for storm sewer repair and maintenance, $5,000 to the water fund and $10,000 for sanitary sewer repairs and maintenance that was deemed “unexpected” when council first passed the resolution on March 10.

Also approved at Monday’s meeting was Resolution 2242, which allows for the transfer of money from the general fund to the tree commission fund. The resolution was again passed 5-0 with one absence. 

Councilman Eric West  informed council that the village’s financial situation is “much better off” in 2014 compared to 2013. West said the village has $300,000 more in its accounts than where it was at this point last year.
