At its regular June meeting, the Johnson County Fiscal Court voted to amend the 2017/2018 budget to include a few unbudgeted receipts before the close of the fiscal year June 30.

The court had received $181 in surplus property, $1,191.19 in FEMA flood reimbursement, $18,278.30 for truck licensing, $109,928.60 for county road aid and $89,842.74 for various reimbursements. 

The full $219,421.83 in revenue was moved to an account for reserve for transfer. 

The court also voted to amend a long-standing ordinance relating to solid waste management in order to clear up some language. The amendment reduces the number of members on the board in order to make a quorum easier to reach, County Attorney Michael Endicott said, and gives the fiscal court itself the rights to arbitrate contracts and to accept, reject or modify recommendations on rate changes.
