Supervisors approve pre-audit spending freeze
Published: June 12,2012
ADAMS COUNTY — The Adams County Board of Supervisors has agreed to implement a non-necessity spending freeze for all county departments effective July 1.
But the board members were quick to emphasize that it wasn’t because the county is operating in a hole.
Instead, president Darryl Grennell tells The Natchez Democrat it was to ensure no invoices are outstanding when it comes time to audit the books or for the board to start the budgeting process.
The decision was made at a meeting with county administrator Joe Murray to begin pre-planning for the yearly budgeting process, which will begin in August.
Murray says the supervisors have historically instituted a spending freeze on all non-necessity spending in July.
