Name calling isn't intended to advance the conversation. The purpose is to intimidate the other side of the conversation to withdraw from the debate. A tactic used most often by liberals when their talking points gun is out of bullets. This is why Eric Holder is wrong when he said we are afraid to have a conversation about race - fear has nothing to do with it - the liberal side runs out of bullets…

Adams County has cash flow concerns

3 years, 4 months ago by Kevin Payne, WTAD News

State is $500,000 behind in payments to County

The Adams County Board had good and bad news on the money front at Tuesday's monthly meeting.

Cash flow for the county’s general fund is a concern, according to County Board Finance Chairman John Johnson, who reported to the full board Tuesday night on how late state payments are affecting the county.

 “We’re behind in revenues from them by about $500,000 because they are three or four months behind,” Johnson said. “Other lines such as sales taxes are down from what they were a year ago and that’s of concern because we thought the economy was picking up.” 

Johnson told the Board the Finance Committee is asking department heads and officeholders to "tighten our belts until things pick up and turn around." He added that he did not know when the overdue state revenues would be coming in to the county. 

Johnson also shared that an effort by Tri-Health, the county's health insurance agent for employees, is correcting prescription errors, which results in savings. 

“It’s an interaction between employees and a clinical pharmacist by email and by phone to correct errors [in using medications] that has already saved us about $8,000, as well as preventing potential hospitalizations and emergency room calls by up to $40,000.” 

The Board also approved a bid waiver for emergency work on the Bear Creek Bridge on County Highway 7 about four miles east of Meyer.

The board's next meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. due to Township caucuses on Tuesday, April 10.
