Concern expressed as county general fund below $1 million

    The Adams County Council decided at its monthly meeting on Tuesday to join the county commissioners to form a Courthouse Project Committee. The committee will meet at 7:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month to make decisions regarding the courthouse.
    The council also received a letter from the commissioners which expressed concern that the county's General fund has less than $1 million in it at present. The commissioners recommended that no more additional appropriations be made until after spring distribution, and then they should be conservative.
    Department heads should review potential purchases with the commissioners before actually making a purchase, they said.
