Notable LCSO Sheriff and Jail budget expenditures for first 6 months of 2018 (Source: County Clerk Expenditures Report June 30, 2018)
County Revenue-Sheriff budget: Of the initial $587,005 budgeted we only expended only 43.10%. Use of overtime for road patrol deputies has been up primarily due to employee shortages, court and statutory requirements, and training.
County Revenue-Jail Budget: Jail board initial budget of $460,000 for 2018 has only expended 43.9% during the 1st six months. However, our detainee population has soared and we anticipate difficulty in staying with this budget line item.
Law Enforcement Sales Tax-Sheriff budget: We have only expended 31.93% of our initial $170,800 authorized.
Law Enforcement Sales Tax-Jail budget: Had $88,500 originally budgeted and we expended 47.28% the first six months of 2018. There is a variety of operating expenses in this budget such as office utilities, telephones, computer use with the Missouri Highway Patrol Records system, detainee medical expenses, and detainee extradition expenses.

We will continue with every attempt to remain within the 2018 approved budgets by the Livingston County Commission. We are hopeful you find this information useful. Since the sheriff and staff work for the citizens of Livingston County, we are continuing with the primary goal of being open, honest, and transparent with the public.
We thank you,
