County starts 2012 with more cash than expected

Jan 10, 2012

Tippecanoe County is starting off 2012 with a little more cash-on-hand than expected.

Auditor Jennifer Weston says the county currently has about $1.7-million in uncommitted funds.

She says the County Council will have to decide what to do with the money.

Options include spending it, putting it in the rainy day fund, or giving some back to tax payers.

Weston says she is recommending officials wait until later in the year before making any decisions.
