Mid-Mo Ambulance Board approves budget

September 20th, 2011 in News

The Mid-Mo Ambulance Board of Directors approved a proposed budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year at the regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 14. The Mid-Mo fiscal year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

The proposed budget was presented by Administrator Lee Kempf with funds available projected at $2,789,000 and expenses projected to be $2,545,000. Reserve funds are projected to be $244,000.

"We've had a good year," Kempf said.

He went on to explain that the district has attempted to keep costs and expenses down as much as possible. By working for the greatest cost-efficiency, Kempf said the district will end the current fiscal year on Sept. 30 in good shape.

The proposed budget for 2011-12 projects revenue increases by $110,000 in Base rate income, $97,000 in Mileage income, $2,000 in Supplies, $42,000 in Sales Tax, and $5,000 in Miscellaneous Income (standbys). The proposed budget projects revenue decreases in property tax income from both Moniteau and Morgan counties, as well as interest income.
