The amendment moved funds from the Solid Waste Fund to the Disaster Relief Fund to cover debris-related expenses.
Finance Committee Chair Connie Wilson asked how much the county had spent out of the Solid Waste Fund.
County Accounting Director Lynn Burns said the county had used approximately $1.7 million from the fund for debris expenses. The fund still has about $200,000, according to Burns.
A second budget amendment passed for EMA to accept revenue from contracted services, and increase the expenses for tower expenses.
Spence explained the expense had not been budgeted, but the revenue to cover it had been.
Committee member Ed Elkins questioned why this would be the case. The committee postponed a decision about the amendment until more information could be obtained.
The committee also passed amendments concerning the Healthy Community Initiative grants, and to accept federal reimbursement for meth lab cleanup.
The committee had postponed the HCI amendments at its last regular meeting because committee members had unanswered questions concerning the interest that is paid on the money to the Cleveland Bradley County Public Library.
Legislative Assistant Amy Moore said she works with the grants and does not handle the money which goes to the library. Moore said there is enough money in the grant fund to cover the amendments.
An amendment to move the HCI grant funding for testing at the future site of the Bradley County Veterans home was also approved.
