Moulder “put the brakes” on spending
Oconee’s finance director, Mark Pulliam, credited Administrator Scott Moulder today for applying sufficient brakes on spending during the last government year. By applying the brakes, Pulliam said, Oconee finished 2012-13 with a higher fund balance than had been projected. Three out of every four dollars generated for the county are derived from the property tax. But Pulliam tied the economy to a picture of general revenues which did not meet projections. The county fell short in the areas, he said: airplane fuel sales, parks and recreation fees, and sold waste recyclables.
