2017 Was a Budget Beater For Montgomery County.

Revenues were up while expenses were down. Chief Financial officer Dean Dortone told the Commissioners last week the County collected almost 14-million dollars more than it expected.

He also said more than a third of that came from one time revenues realized in 2017.

“Domestic relations prior year adjustments, these are performance incentives that we received from prior years and after they had been reconciled they were transferred over and that was about 2.4 million of prior year adjustment.”

The other two one time revenue enhancements came from higher than usual real estate tax settlements and prior year recovered expenditures in the health choices fund.
