owensborologoOWENSBORO, Ky. (8/21/13) -- An ordinance was read before the commissioners, at Tuesday’s board meeting, to amend the annual budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30, 2014. This was to correct all beginning fund balances, roll over all outstanding encumbrances and capital projects, and to allocate a portion of surplus funds from the last fiscal year to go to agency funding and various operational needs.

The city will reimburse the county for the cost of paving for the total amount of $9,700.
