?County Council approves Highway Department’s request for additional fuel money PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 August 2008 00:00
??    The Washington County Council met in regular session on Monday, August 4 with all members present.  The Council unanimously approved the minutes of previous meetings.
    Washington County Highway Department Superintendent, Rick Graves, and County Commissioner, Mike Goering, requested permission to transfer $58,000 from other accounts to the Gas and Oil account to pay a misplaced fuel bill from April of this year.  According to Graves he became aware of the oversight when he recently received notice that no further shipments of fuel would be delivered until the bill was paid.  The request was approved
unanimously.
     In a telephone interview, Graves said that the overlooked fuel bill was approximately $29,000.  When asked why wouldn’t that money still be in the fuel fund since it is an account payable, Graves said that it has been absorbed by the sharp rises in fuel cost this summer.  “With the rising cost of fuel, I underestimated the budget for fuel and oil.” admitted Graves.
