Fisher court debates unexpected funds

Fisher court debates unexpected funds

Fisher County Auditor Becky Mauldin informed commissioners Monday that the county recently received around $2,600 in revenue from pipeline agreements/permits. While the commissioners agreed to allocate the funds to the affected precinct’s budget, how to distribute future funds became a catalyst for debate.

Prior to allocation, the county auditor must certify funds received from a new source after the beginning of the fiscal year, as such revenue was not included when adopting the annual budget. Additionally, the court agreed this most recent payment should be funneled back into Precinct 4, as the pipeline in question is located within that precinct.

Stonewall Commissioner resigns office

After 11 years of public service, Stonewall County Commissioner David Hoy officially announced his retirement Monday, ultimately resigning his office with a year left in his term.

“I’ve been thinking on this a long time and I just don’t feel it anymore. I don’t feel good anymore,” said Hoy. “I can hardly get around anymore, and I just want to unload some.”

In his official retirement letter, Hoy stated:
