McCroskey and the copiers

This wound up being a sidebar to the main story, but since there’s a document to back up the numbers, why not just post it up here?McCroskey

Knox County Criminal Court Clerk Joy McCroskey has bought some stuff for the office – chairs, copiers, etc. Want to check it out – go here: Criminal Ct 2014

Wonk away, wonks.

Some things to note – this is for the 2013-14 fiscal year. Also, this money comes from the operating fund, which is approved by commission each year, so it’s tax money. Fees collected by the office pay for salaries and benefits and so on in her office.

There is a separate fund that the office collects for technology purposes, but that money has only specific uses. At the end of the 2012-13 fiscal year the fund was about $132,000, and it stands to grow next year, according to Knox County Finance Director Chris Caldwell.

“It’s an accumulating balance,” Caldwell said. “Those particular revenues aren’t held in her office.”

That means that the money can’t be spent willy-nilly on any old thing.

Dick Moran and McCroskey confirmed the same thing.

As for the money used for the copiers and other office purchases, McCroskey said that the cash for the chairs came from the previous year’s budget.

“I think I have been very frugal in my spending,” she said.
