The Clark County Fiscal Court approved a $1.1 million budget for the Clark County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday morning for fiscal year 2007.
The budget includes more than $920,000 in total revenues along with a state advancement of $200,000 and a $45,000 bank note. Salaries constitute more than $618,000 of the annual expenses.
Sheriff Berl Perdue said the budget required court approval before sending it to state offices to receive the advancement. The sheriff's office, which is fee-based, starts the year with a zero fund balance. The advancement will be paid back to the state later in the fiscal year as the office receives tax revenues.
"This is basically start-up money, and that's why we have to have this in as soon as possible because we have payroll coming up in a couple of weeks," Perdue said.
