Big ling = Happy fishermen

Board OKs $58 million budget

Curry County commissioners adopted its $57.98 million budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year during a special meeting Monday, two days before it must have one in place for the upcoming year.

The budget is slightly higher than that of last year’s — $57.3 million — but dramatically smaller than that of, say, 2010-2011, the heyday of Curry County’s revenue stream, when it was $75.6 million, noted County Accountant Gary Short in his budget message last month.

The bulk of the property tax revenue, in either case, merely transfers through the county to special districts, including schools, fire departments, libraries and scores of others. The county ultimately keeps about 6 percent, or $1.4 million for its general fund, from which all county services are supposed to be funded.
