NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Adams County ended its fiscal year with $2.95 million in positive cash balances.

Chancery Clerk Tommy O’Bierne tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1Rxr4QH) that’s the best cash balance on hand the county has ever had at the annual Sept. 30 close of the fiscal year.

But while county officials say that amount is noteworthy, they say it’ll go toward operating expenses during months when no revenue comes in.

County Administrator Joe Murray says the end of the year, when no tax revenues are coming in, is always tight, and having a significant cash balance helps meet payroll and other needs as well has prepare for any unforeseen incidents that may arise.
