The Pearl River County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Wednesday morning to approve a budget of $15.4 million.
A budget option that was created and recommended to the board by County Administrator Adrain Lumpkin set the budget at $15.6 million. The differences between the two budgets was that budget option one used about $180,000 cash on hand to be spread out amongst the departments. Supervisors Dennis Dedeaux, Joyce Culpepper and Sandy Kane Smith voted for budget option two, which kept the cash out of the budget. Supervisor Anthony Hales and Board President J. Patrick Lee voted to approve the budget recommended by Lumpkin.
