The Winchester Board of Commissioners Monday approved a draft budget for fiscal year 2012-13, which projects a general fund cash balance of about $1.6 million at the end of the fiscal year and total revenues of about $15.1 million.
Commissioners cut some funding to outside agencies, but increased funding to others.
Most notably, they voted unanimously to increase funding to Clark County Aging Services from $32,600 to $40,900 to provide the home meal delivery program to half of those currently on a waiting list.
Commissioner Shannon Cox made the motion for the funding increase, and Commissioner Rick Beach seconded.
Last week during the first of the two day-long budget work sessions, Julie Woosley, director of senior programs, told commissioners about the waiting list while she was making her regular budget request.
The $32,000 Woosley requested was the same as last year.
“I was bothered when Julie said there were 14 folks on the list over at the Generations Center that they could not provide meals for, and this is going to sound strange coming from me, but I would like to increase from the $32,600 that the city manager recommended and fund half of what they would need to feed those folks,” Cox said.
