Commissioners approve $195.3M budget, including $49.4M general fund

SPRINGFIELD, OH (Jan. 22, 2020) – The Board of Clark County Commissioners approved a $195.3 million budget for 2020, including a $49.4 million general fund, at its meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
The budget also included about $145.9 million in special revenue funds, such as utilities and federal pass-through dollars used by the Clark County Department of Job and Family Services.

“After several years of flat budgeting, we were able to approve a much-deserved pay increase for our county team members,” said Board President Melanie Flax Wilt. “Sales tax revenues have steadily increased over the last year which has allowed us to re-invest in our employees, aging county infrastructure, and programming that supports workforce and youth development. For the first time in decades, Clark County is showing strong economic growth thanks to strategic decision-making and collaboration with our partners.”

The county used about $6.3 million in carryover funds from 2019 to balance the budget. The county projects sales tax revenue to increase by 8.9 percent due to retail growth and changes to online sales tax collection.

The budget also includes about $2.8 million in capital projects for county departments and operating money for local agencies such as the Community Improvement Corp., the Clark County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Clark County Ohio State University Extension.
