CELINA-In addition to a vote on filling a vacant school board spot that ended in a 4-4 tie, the Clay County Commission acted on several resolutions at its June meeting.

In the two non-budget resolutions, commissioners:

In the budget-related items, commissioners:

• approved a budget amendment shifting $34,250 from bridge construction to 10 different line items in the highway/public works fund. The biggest line item was $29,900 for liquid asphalt,

• transferred $8,034 between the debt service, county improvement and county general funds, “in reference to the new $50 litigation tax resolution passed in November, 2008,” the resolution said,

• passed a continuing budget and tax rate for the fiscal year beginning July 1,

• transferred $10,443 and $300 from various line items in the county general fund,

• transferred $1,000 in the library fund,
