Fayette County Commission says this year’s revenues will be okay despite COVID-19 costs

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – In a teleconference Fayette County Commission meeting, the commission “laid the levy” which means the auditor approved the balanced budget for the upcoming year.

Fayette County’s budget is looking to be a little bit over $10 million with almost $580,000 in coal severance.

On Tuesday, they met with the assessor’s office to go over the budget and Commission President Denise Scalph says revenues look to be in okay shape despite COVID-19 costs.

“We’re in a position where things should be okay through 2021, so it should not affect this upcoming budget year,” Scalph said. 

The fiscal year will kick off on July 1.
