Dougherty County is rolling in the money

January 8, 2007

Albany - Dougherty County is bringing in more money and spending less. That word coming today as county commissioners were given a report on the financial highlights from last year.

Among them, that all county debts are paid off, except for a bond on the Department of Human Resources building downtown. Also, the county brought in $1.1 Million in revenues that were in excess of the budget, and spent $1 Million less than budgeted.

Auditor Charles Hall says, "Dougherty has been run as well as most any city or county from a financial viewpoint that I've seen. Each year we see that Dougherty County actually spends a little less than they budget."

Dougherty County is so financially sound that there is enough money to operate the county for almost five months without any additional money coming in.
