Hawthorne, who drafted the budget after consulting with all of the county department heads, presented it to the excise board for final approval Wednesday. The Comanche County Board of Commissioners approved the preliminary budget at its weekly meetingMonday morning.
The annual budget of $8,565,598 is balanced to match the county’s projected revenue for the same period.
The budget for 2014-2015 is $218,598 more than the budget for the previous fiscal year.
“We only had enough revenue increase to keep us current,” Hawthorne said.
