Brown Co begins 2024 budget process

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--The Brown County Commission has begun the 2024 budget process.

Department heads and organizations receiving funding from the county reviewed their 2024 budget proposals with commissioners last week.

The Road and Bridge Department submitted the largest budget request. It was $4.2 million.

Commissioners took the funding requests under advisement and will consider them when drafting next year's county budget.

In other business, the ccommission approved the appointment of Lafe Bailey to the Comprehensive Planning Committee to replace Ben Swinger.

Also Road and Bridge Secretary Tami Lehmkuhl discussed the purchase of a used back hoe for District 1 from Purple Wave Auction. Following discussion, the Commission voted to move forward with allowing Lehmkuhl to bid on the back hoe up to $65,500 plus commission.
