MOUNT VERNON — Discussion took place about handling finances through a lean year in 2013 when the Knox County Board of Health met Wednesday evening at the Knox County Health Department. Health commissioner Julie Miller explained that although the recent health department operations levy was approved by a narrow margin, those funds are not received until the 2014 fiscal year.
“The next 15 months are going to be a lean time for lots of different reasons, some of it being health care reimbursement we’re not seeing,” said Miller. “We’re putting some scenarios together. Our priority is to try to save jobs. There’s going to be some cost-saving efforts such as reduction in hours or contract work. But we don’t have anything concrete yet.”
Approval was given to remit $2,480.44 to the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission and to transfer the remaining $2,000 balance from the manufactured home park fund to the general fund. This state commission will now be performing duties previously performed by the health department.
