Board transfers $80,000 for sheriff's budget
During their meeting Tuesday, Pierce County Board members voted to transfer $81,751 from the General Fund to cover a 2005 deficit in the sheriff's department budget.
Last year, the department spent $60,229 more than budgeted for overtime pay and $35,090 more than budgeted for gasoline. After unspent money in other areas was applied to the overruns, the department was left with the $81,751 deficit.
