The Johnson County Board of Supervisors agreed to cut $1.1 million from its budget for fiscal 2010, Supervisor Rod Sullivan said.

The budget was around $75 million; it will be somewhere closer to $74 million now, he said.

Savings will come from two sources, said Supervisor Janelle Rettig.

The supervisors will no longer allocate funds for bonding to start a new ambulance and medical examiner building, she said.

“We have still made a commitment to continue planning on this project, but we are holding off on taxing citizens just yet,” she said.

Money for loan payments on for the Health and Human Services building will also be diminished.

“We are ahead of payments, and all this means is we will not pay off the debt as aggressively as before,” Rettig said.

The budget cut will reduce the amount of taxes originally proposed by the supervisors, although county taxes will still slightly increase from last year.
