Carbon County has approved its 2010 budget. Although some areas were overspent, the county funds surplus should cover them. The error represents and covers a diverse range of items. One of the biggest areas of oversight was the new emergency services building bond payment, which came to an additional $29,000. Other areas were the wildland fire funds and some GIS funds.

According to County Accountant, Robert Perro, most of the problems were a result of a formula error. He said that the surplus should be well able to handle the additions. Currently, the surplus funds amount to $8,475,408. As the budget is only a forecast of future county spending, this surplus represents a total before the above expenditures were withdrawn.

The total 2010 budget for Carbon County comes to around $13,472,969 in general funds. However, several other funds were approved including $9,216,857 for municipal services and $5,890,000 for the Recreation Transportation Special Services District (RTSSD).

A few other significant funds are in place, including the County Building Authority (CBA) at $11,369,911. The CBA oversees projects such as the senior citizens center, as well as other large scale undertakings.

The county is also owed around $512,000 in delinquent taxes for 2009.
