Constitutional Officers Return an Additional $1,040,086.71 to the BCC at End of FY
By state law, the constitutional offices of Escambia County must return excess, unexpended funds back to the BCC at the end of the Fiscal Year. On Monday, the Escambia County Clerk of the Court returned nearly One Million dollars.
Today, we received another $1,040,086.71 from the Tax Collector, the Property Appraiser, and the County Sheriff.
The amounts returned to the county are indicated on the checks above.
In speaking to staff--although the precise amounts to be returned were not known in advance--the BCC was aware that money would be coming back and had a general idea of what this amount would be.
