Error Requires Big Fix To Minnehaha County Budget
July 28, 2010, 7:32 AM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Minnehaha County commissioners will have to redo the 2011 budget after an accounting error of more than $500,000.
County Administrator Ken McFarland says the error was made by the auditor's office, and resulted in commissioners dealing with the wrong numbers in their last budget committee meeting.
The committee had narrowed the budget increase for fiscal 2011 to about $16,000, but $514,000 in expenses now have to be added to the budget.
Commissioner Carol Twedt isn't happy about the mix-up. She says everyone makes mistakes, but "this is a big one."
The county must adopt a final budget by September 28.
