No public comment at Fulton County Council budget public hearing

The Fulton County Council held a public hearing on the 2023 budget during their monthly meeting this week.


Council President Phyl Olinger opened the public hearing, and no one in the room spoke regarding the budget.  The council will have the first reading of the 2023 budget during next month’s meeting.


County Councilman Ron Dittman says the budget is one of the harder things the council must do.


In other business, Sheriff Chris Sailors presented his monthly report for August.  The Sheriff’s Department had 792 incidents, 143 traffic stops, 75 criminal case investigations, and 26 accidents.  The daily average inmate population for August was 105. 


The next County Council meeting is on October 18, at 4:30 pm.
