Fire district passes budget
Just in time for the New Year, the Lincoln Parish Fire Protection District No. 1 approved the 2013 budget at a special called meeting on Dec. 31.
The budget, with which three of the seven commissioners disagreed, included $1,563,325 of means of financing. That number included a $336,947 prior year fund balance and a $62,216 interfunds transfer from the fire district’s equipment replacement fund. Expenditures were expected to amount to approximately $1,213,619, leaving an ending fund balance of $349,706.
