The Board of County Commissioners of Madison County, Florida met this day in Special Session with the following members present: Ricky Henderson (District 1), Wayne Vickers (District 2), Ronnie Moore (District 3), Alfred Martin (District 4), and  Roy Ellis (District 5).  Also present were County Coordinator Allen Cherry, County Clerk Tim Sanders, Clerk of Courts Director of Finance Sandra Bass, and Deputy Clerk Lessia Freeman.


The Chairman, Honorable Roy Ellis, called the Final Public Hearing on the budget for fiscal year 2007-2008 to order.

The Chairman opened the hearing for comments from the public.  One citizen questioned the status of the investigation by the County Attorney of a cost recovery program, which would possibly increase revenues to the county.  The Chairman stated that he would ask about said status at the next Regular Meeting.  Solid Waste/Recycling Coordinator Jerome Wyche thanked the Board for their efforts during the budget process.  Hearing no further comments, the Public Hearing was closed. 


The Clerk also reviewed the following cuts in funds for community service agencies during the budget preparation and presented $67,000 in new General Fund revenues from subdivision applications and less than expected insurance costs:
