Unbalanced IDA budget approved

After operating without an adopted budget since July 1, the Halifax County Industrial Development Authority on Friday adopted an unbalanced  2012-13 operating budget that includes $2,485,315.68 in income and $2,522.948.20 in expenses.

According to Authority Executive Director Matt Leonard, the budget is based on very conservative expenses, and by the end of the year, he anticipates having enough left over from individual line items to balance the $37,632.52 deficit.

If not, Leonard said the additional revenue can be withdrawn from the authority’s savings account to cover the budget gap.

Acting on a motion by Marcus Hargrave, seconded by Butch Blanks, the board approved the budget as presented.
