At last Monday’s council meeting, Northumberland County CAO Jennifer Moore and Treasurer Glenn Dees presented the annual County Financial report. They listed accomplishments, talked about upcoming priorities and gave a good summary of the county budget with highlights (see link below for the full presentation). The financial summary was simpler and easier to understand than previously provided. Major Projects for the next 10 years were listed, allocation of tax dollars was spelled out and the split in sources of funding was shown. In reporting on waste management, Jennifer said work was being done in preparation for the introduction in 2019 of collection of a third type of waste – garbage that could be composted. Details are still being worked out but it’s coming!
The most interesting part of their presentation (for me anyway) was the financial data.
Below are some graphics recreated from the data in the presentation (see Link below). As the saying goes: “A picture is worth a thousand words”. As usual click image to enlarge.
