Supervisors consider re-appropriating public health funds

By Zach Jensen,

In response to Winneshiek County Public Health’s decertification of its home health services, the Winneshiek County Board of Supervisors during its Monday meeting considered reappropriating some of Public Health’s funds.

“Every year that I’ve been auditor, we’ve always just appropriated the full budget to every department, so they have the authority to spend their full budget,” said Winneshiek County Auditor Ben Steines. “But, I know there’s some talk about changing that budget, both from the Board of Health and (the supervisors’) end. So, maybe you don’t want to appropriate the whole amount, if you know you’re going to lower it within a month or two. I just need to know how to prepare the resolution that gets passed at the end of the month.”
