The Knox County News-Courier—
BENJAMIN—The Knox County Commissioners Court received a clean opinion for its annual audit from Jerry Love CPA, LCC during its monthly meeting Monday morning and voted to approve it.
“Rosie (Ake) does a great,” said Debra Goodheer.
The audit showed that the county did better than expected financially with a net income increase of $175,000 in the general fund and a $21,000 increase in roads and bridges.
It was noted by Ake that adjustments will be made to show a zero balance instead of a negative one for the Knox Aging Center.
“We are feeding a lot more,” director Jim Dillon said later in his report.
The commissioners turned down a request by Merl Pryor concerning leasing or renting the County Barn in Benjamin. Pryor did not attend the meeting.
The commissioners approved the appointment of Tracy Cartwright and Judy Hobert to the Knox County Hospital Board of Directors and discussed assisting to help improve conditions at the Munday Event Center for the annual livestock show.
Judge Stan Wojcik did mention that Longroad still wanted to amend the tax abatement agreement, but the county didn’t agree.
He also had heard the start of the turbines project in the eastern part of the county might be delayed.
