MOUNT VERNON — A slight increase in the 2014 budget was requested by Knox Soil & Water Conservation District Director Rob Clendening when he met Monday morning with the Knox County Board of Commissioners.

Total appropriations proposed for 2014 stand at $325,230, up from $299,357 in 2013. Main line item proposed increases for 2014 include salaries, travel and equipment.

Clendening explained that Regional Planning Commission Director Darrell Severns’ salary is now a part of the SWCD budget beginning Jan. 1 due to a realignment of duties. “What we’re hoping to do is a better leverage for the overall budget picture. We’re able to leverage the matching money a little bit from the state for some of the activities that Darrell was doing,” said Clendening. “He will pick up some additional responsibilities for us in helping to manage the wildlife nuisance permit program.”
