HARRODSBURG — Officials from the Mercer County Sanitation District hope $25,000 will be enough to tide the district over for the rest of the fiscal year.
At its meeting Tuesday, the Mercer County Fiscal Court approved a request from David Weber for a $25,000 draw for the district. Weber is secretary and treasurer for the district's board. The money comes from the court's budget and will help the district with its operating cost.
The court budgets $50,000 per fiscal year for the district, Fiscal Court clerk Gayle Horn said at the meeting.
In October, the district paid out more than $18,000 and its income was about $9,000.
Weber said he hopes this is the only time he has to ask the court for a draw on the sanitation district's budget this fiscal year, but he can't make any promises. He told the court the district is down to one month's worth of operating costs.
