It’s not a bonus, it’s accounting

by Dennis Phillips
 
There has been some confusion concerning the budgeted pay periods for the non-hourly employees and elected officials of Robertson County. In most years there are 26 paydays or pay periods, but once every 10 or 11 years, it happens, 27 pay periods. This is not abnormal, it happens for all Texas counties and here is why. Every 10 or 11th year, the accounting has to add an extra pay period to catch up to the budget. This is generated by a leap year and the fact that the budget is set in September. Basically, all entities that set a budget in September annually face the additional pay period.

The County nears end of budgeting cycle Burn ban remains in effect

by Melissa Freeman
 
After brief public hearings over the proposed County tax rate of .475 and the County Clerk and District Clerk’s preservation and restoration of records plans, the Robertson County Commissioners’ Court handled a number of routine matters typical of the close of a fiscal year. During the tax rate hearing, resident Cathy Lazarus suggested again that the County pay off its outstanding debt with reserve funds and use the debt payment to hire an additional sheriff’s deputy. She also pointed put that frozen taxable properties (frozen because the resident is 65 or older) are not properly figured into the total tax levy. Refiguring the levy and paying off the debit would allow the County to decrease the tax hike, she said.
