The Livingston County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) has several budgets we operate under and each focuses on a different parts of the operation and services we provide. June 30 is the halfway point of our budget year and overall for 2020 we are operating well within our overall budget.
Sheriff budget has used 46.54% through June 30.
Jail budget has used only 35.52% through June 30 but those expenditures are now increasing with the easing of Covid 19 issues.
Civil Fees budget shows only 12% expenditures but a part of that budget will be transferred to support deputy salary at the end of the year.
Law Enforcement Sales Tax-Sheriff shows 30.76% expended.
Law Enforcement Sales Tax-Jail shows 38.7% expended.
Concealed Carry budget shows 53.65% spent, but that total budget is only $850 dollars.
Inmate Security Funds shows 0.00% spent, but that total budget is $15,000 and is transferred at the end of the year into other jail budgets to help cover health care costs for detainees.
Law Enforcement Training shows 55.55% spent of the $4,600 allocated for training.
Overall the LCSO budget is in great shape and we look forward to working with area agencies and communities the remainder of 2020.
