County Council considers first supplemental budget for biennium

The Pierce County Council read the first supplemental budget ordinance for the 2022-23 biennium into the record before voting to delay any further action on said ordinance until the next council meeting, May 3.

“The use of the general fund balance will increase to $75,202,630 in the biennium,” explained senior budget analyst Paul Bocchi during the April 26 meeting.

Council Chair Derek Young said that since the Pierce County budget was finalized in November, a lot has changed, meaning the council needs more time to work on adjustments to the budget.

In other business, the council passed a slew of proclamations, including designating April 26, 2022, as “Domestic Violence Awareness Day” in Pierce County; May 2022 as “Hunger Awareness Month” in the county; May as “Wildfire Awareness Month” in the county; and April 26, 2022 as “Help a Horse Day” in the county, to protect equines from abuse and neglect.

Eric Ott was confirmed as a new member of the South Hill Advisory Commission, and Joseph Beck was confirmed as a new member of the Pierce County Community Development Corporation Board of Directors.
