June 22, 2016 – Denise Bulat, Executive Director, reviewed the FY 2017 Budget as recommended by the Finance and Personnel Committee.  The document was presented at the May 25 meeting for review and adopted at the June 22 meeting.
She reported revenues for FY 2017 are projected to be down 2.1% from the current year, primarily due to the completion of the Henry County Rural Jobs Accelerator grant.

Dues for Bi-State’s member governments are proposed to remain the same as the previous fiscal year.  Continuation of the merit performance review program, with a projected average of 2.0% ($24,790), is recommended along with a 2.0% ($25,287) across the board annual wage adjustment.
