Sheriff worried because of budget shortfall, reduced services
Shelby County Sheriff Chris Curry reiterated concerns about the sheriff’s office’s ability to serve citizens effectively due to lower budgets during a budget review May 13. According to a presentation, the sheriff’s office is facing a budget shortfall of about $378,000 from salaries and other costs. The sheriff’s office budget for fiscal year 2013, which comes in at about $19.5 million, is down more than $2 million from the budget high point in 2009, when the sheriff’s office had $21.7 million in funds. Capt. Ken Burchfield, who prepares the budget for the sheriff’s office, said that while the budget numbers have dropped, costs such as salary obligations have risen — which provides little discretionary spending in the event of an emergency situation.
