Transfer station budget approved


All four cities and towns have approved the Delano Regional Transfer Station budget for 2018.

The budget shows revenues of $503,975 and expenses of $675,850.

The deficit can be tied to two big-expense items: paying off the transfer station semi-truck at $142,615, and the purchase of another trailer, at $90,000.

In spite of the deficit, the budget was passed with only one time through the monthly meetings of the four town councils.

It hasn’t often been that way; in the past, some councils have been reluctant to approve measures that come to them from transfer station officials.

Also, a one-time expense includes a snow plow for the station’s truck at $10,000.

Accordingly, the 2018 ending fund balance shows a hit of about $80,000, with the budget showing a beginning fund balance of $438,000.

Also included in expenses in 2018 is the cost of some $58,000 for repairs to the transfer station, which includes the mold problem in two of the offices.

This repair project previously couldn’t get earlier approval from two of the towns and cities that are part of the Regional Board of Mayors – Grand Coulee and Elmer City.
