GIRARD — Everybody has budgets on the brain at this time of year, and Crawford County Commissioners heard from representatives from two agencies during its Tuesday meeting.

GIRARD — Everybody has budgets on the brain at this time of year, and Crawford County Commissioners heard from representatives from two agencies during its Tuesday meeting.

Mac Young, 11th Judicial District Court Services chief court services officer and Community Corrections administrative director, appeared for signatory approval of the 2013 11th Judicial District Community Corrections budget.

His good news was that there was a carry-over from monies collected during the previous fiscal year from such things as drug testing. Such money may be moved over for any encumbrances Community Corrections may have or applied to the agency’s wish list.

“We have a left-over $12,000 this year that we’ve plugged back in,” Young said.

They  also received  more than $7,000 from the  DUI fund.

“We fared pretty well this year,” Young said. “We were able to put some things back in, which  puts us back to where we were about three years ago. We were able to put some money back for training and travel.”

He pegged the 2013 allotment at $471,425.

Jan Bolin, CLASS president/CEO, was present with her 2013 funding request for commissioners. She asked them to allocate one mill for services for children and adults with developmental disabilities living in Crawford County.

“Last year our allotment was reduced, and we hope that can be reversed,” she said. “We use county money for our facility, for infrastructure and for matching funds for state and federal grants.”

Bolin said  that CLASS currently serves 28 children and 85 adults in this county, and has 34 children and adults in Crawford County on the waiting list for CLASS services.

She said that the agency has a new employment developer on staff who is working with students to help them transition from school into jobs.

Bolin added that CLASS contributes more than $4.4 million annually to the Crawford County economy, offers public transportation, and encourages staff and clients to become involved in community and civic organizations.

County clerk Don Pyle also distributed drafts of the proposed Crawford County 2013 budget for commissioners to study.  He said the budget reflected a 4 percent increase in health insurance premiums for county employees, but that there was a $3,000 to $4,000 reduction in the general fund.

Commissioner Linda Grilz asked if a work session on the budget could be scheduled after the Friday meeting, and commissioners Bob Kmiec and Carl Wood agreed.

“Looks like we’ve got some work to do  Friday,” Wood said. “Maybe we’d better bring lunch.”
