Broadband bonding may be expanded to add projects

Now that Swift County and Federated Telephone Company have been awarded a $4.95 million state grant to expand broadband services in the eastern areas of the county, a bond sale is needed to help finance the remainder of the $12.5 million project.

“This is a reminder of what are our next steps, what did we commit to, and what am I working on to get us there?”  County Administrator Mike Pogge-Weaver told the board of commissioners at their meeting Dec. 1. “It is coming together pretty quickly.”

However, Swift County may need to consider bonding for more than just Federated Telephone’s broadband project. Pogge-Weaver suggested the board also consider whether or not it wants to bond for other projects as well....

Swift County looks to raise taxes 4.5 percent for 2016

Swift County’s net levy has been set at $9,830,278, an increase of $423,313 or 4.5 percent over 2015’s levy.

That increase reflects a continuing reduction in County Program Aid from the state, increasing employment to meet state mandates, and additional projects the county is taking on in 2016.

Swift County’s total revenues are expected to be $20.66 million in 2016 with expenses budgeted at $21.103 million, for a deficit of $444,458.

However, the county will be receiving a $121,412 loan payment for the Swift County-Benson Hospital in 2016 and a $311,739 loan payment from CNHi for a total of  $433,151. That will help keep the cash position of the county steady, County Administrator Mike Pogge-Weaver said at the annual Truth in Taxation hearing last Tuesday.
