Last Fiscal Year Not Good For Mercer County

auditor jim taylorThe last fiscal year wasn’t too kind to Mercer County. The Mercer County Board last night heard some numbers from the county’s auditor–Jim Taylor.

The fiscal year ended November 30th. As far as the county’s general fund goes, Taylor says it had an ending cash balance of $426,000, but lost $1,073,000 during the fiscal year with $500,000 of that attributed to debt service.
