County Council Discuss Budget With Department Heads

(ANGOLA) - The Steuben County Council conducted its hearing on the proposed 2015 budget with various department heads on Tuesday.

As usual, members of the judicial branch were the first to appear before the Council. Instead of asking for a fourth employee like he has in the past, Circuit Court Judge Allen Wheat along with Superior Court Judge William Fee and Magistrate Randy Coffey are asking for a part-time employee who would serve all three courts.

After hiring a third worker in the Circuit Court office at a starting salary of $22,500, Judge Wheat felt the starting pay was inadequate and embarrassing when compared to neighboring counties.

Judge Fee said there was money in the proposed Superior Court budget that would be used in case a jury is sequestered during a major trial.

Pam Feller from the Probation Department said they could not pay workers out of user fee funds anymore and that salaries should come out of the county general fund.

The proposed General Fund budget is about $11.3 million which is higher than the amended 2014 budget of just over $10 million. The Council will work on the budget starting next Wednesday.
