Magistrates had a special meeting Thursday morning to discuss several budget amendments and transfers.
Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney presented magistrates with an amended 2009 budget, which he said includes $30,000 to $40,000 more in excess fees than the County originally budgeted. Carney said some line items are different than originally budgeted, such as the salary, license transfer and usage fee amounts.
An amount that has increased, Carney said, is the cost to offer credit card payments for customers. He said the cost is now about $5,000 each year.
