Houston County is starting off the next year with a surplus of funding from this past year.

The extra money will allow for improvements to the county jail, as well as road and bridge projects.

In a meeting on Monday, commissioners learned the county will start with $8.7 million dollars and should end with just over $6 million dollars, because of this past year's savings.

Houston County Commission Chairman, Mark Culver, says “We had a very positive budget this year and it says a lot about our employees and department heads and the commission. We're trying our best to do the best job we can with the money the taxpayers let us use and I think the budget today shows that we're accomplishing that."

With the extra money, the county is also able to increase their support of non-profit agencies, like the Wiregrass Museum of Art and Houston-Love Memorial Library.
