Local News

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Berkeley County’s finance committee is preparing to make some decisions tonight. County council did not pass a new budget this year.

They chose a continuing resolution, which basically uses last year’s budget. But they believe some new items may need funding

Council’s finance committee is expected to take up 15 items, things they believe are very important and should be funded before the end of the year.

The now new concern, the driving concern, is that the fund balance has gone negative last year with our revenue projections.

In other words, the money that was estimated to come in is not coming in. Whitley says the difference was almost $5 million bucks.
