I got the detailed budget to better understand the county budget summary in the paper. It explains the receipts and expenses in detail so I'm passing them on to you. I did not reproduce the detail of line items in the General Fund. The 2014 fiscal paperwork has been has been completed by the auditors and includes another level to the already complex accounting system. The level of ACTUAL, though official for 2014 is not yet official for 2015. So the ACTUAL is still vague for the moment. Questions and/or concerns can be discussed with the commissioners on Aug 31st at 9 am at the courthouse.


These figures are based on a not yet approved Budget. They are subject to change until approved on August 31st 2016

The greenhouse is small, was built with scrap material and only 4 feet deep but is working very well. It goes to show how we can supplement our diet and health with just a little effort.

Proper fence is needed for grazing livestock in a rotational grazing system. As mentioned before, a rest-rotation grazing system is essential for properly managing grazing systems in the western Kansas area of short grass and mid-grass prairie.

Many perimeter fences are 3 or 4 strands of barbed wire. Interior cross-fences are usually a single smooth wire. The interior fe
