Preble County Budget Report – April 25, 2017 – You’ve been had.

Historic does not do this General Fund balance justice.  The Preble County General Fund hit an all time high on March 31, 2017 of $5,999,072.19.  This calls into question all those requests in recent years for tax levies supported by Commission Day and Junior Commissioner Creech.  Commissioner Robertson has been right to question the need for tax increases.   Seriously folks – you’ve been had. Commissioner Creech is the next commissioner up for re-election and some serious questions need to be asked.

I'd like to once again thank Preble County Auditor Lavon Wright for fulfilling my recent "open records" request to continue sending me the budget report.
