By CHRISTINE STEPHENSON
FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Town Council adopted the town’s 2022 budget Tuesday.
The advertised budget is $2,535,647, with an estimated $897,647 to be raised locally.
The adopted tax rate is 77 cents per $100 assessed value, down from 80 cents per $100 assessed value in 2021.
The budget includes $1,241,472 in the general fund, $390,180 for the motor vehicle highway fund, $159,500 for the park fund, $70,000 for the local road and street fund and smaller amounts for other funds, such as continuing education. It also includes $30,000 for the Ferdinand Folk Fest and about $63,000 for the Old Town Lake.
This compares to a budget of $2,126,214 with an estimated $861,106 raised locally in 2021.
The council also:
• Approved the conditional hiring of Rayce Jones as a full-time officer for the Ferdinand Police Department. He is set to start Oct. 4.
• Voted to keep the town’s COVID-19 emergency order in place until at least next month’s meeting. Masks are currently required in the Town Hall regardless of vaccination status.
• Heard that the town did not receive a grant from the State Water and Infrastructure Fund. The town will likely reapply again in 2022.
• Approved an ordinance for the limb and yard waste program to reflect current procedure.
• Approved a salary ordinance amendment for Kayla Hoffman, the town’s deputy clerk.
• Gave permission to advertise for additional appropriations from round one of the Community Crossings Matching Grant. The town has already received about $160,000 that will be used for street improvements but needs authorization first.
