whether the association has thepower to dictate to the county any-thing about the jail.But Thomas also notifed thecounty o an increase in the cost o medical services or the jail.He said the physician chosento provide the services has calledor an increase in his services rom$120,000 to $162,900 or an averagepopulation o 75 inmates due toincreased costs.Madray said the most recent jailpower bill was $3,500 — and that’swith only 75 percent o air condi-tioning units in operation. It will bemuch higher when the jail is in ulloperation, he said.The sheri’s reusal to complywith cutbacks comes at a time whenthe county fnds itsel in debt tothe tune o $1.6 million and thebalance o the $3 million line o credit dwindling rapidly as somecounty department heads continueto overspend.Since the line o credit wasissued in January, the county gov-ernment has called or advances o more than $200,000 in some months.In January the county wasrequired to pay o the balance o $400,000 on a loan rom last yearwhich came out o this year’s loan.In April the county was orcedto take advances o $150,000, in May$300,000, in July $210,000, and inAugust $525,000, leaving the line o credit balance at only $1.4 millionto last the year. I it doesn’t last, thecounty will be orced to seek yetanother loan.Advances taken by the countyare mostly or expenses such aspayroll and power bills, which willcontinue to drain the county’s lineo credit as long as county depart-ment heads reuse to cut back onemployee hours and usage o airconditioners and other power hun-gry devices.In act, advances have beentimed to paydays over the past ewmonths.The county drew $150,000 onApril 3, a payday; $150,000 on May 1and 15, both paydays; $60,000 July 10and $150,000, both paydays; $275,000on Aug. 7 and $250,000 on Aug. 21,both paydays.The means the county has beenunable to meet payroll in our o the past six months, being orcedto borrow to pay employees eachpayday.Madray has called or $271,000in cutbacks in the cost o opera-tions, but that request has allenon dea ears in some departmentswhich continue spending as usual,even in the ace o a $3 millionshortall.The county manager said he isconsidering asking the county toapprove a 1/12 budget which wouldorce department heads to balancetheir budgets at the end o everymonth, much like most people areorced to do with their personalbank accounts.
