{Stacey McElhaney, Director Roane County Animal Shelter}

The 5th Annual Santa Paws was a holiday success thanks to Earl Duff Subaru, the ASPCA, the Roane County Animal Shelter Staff, Planned Pethood, Santa, and lots of amazing volunteers. Four cats and fourteen dogs met their new families. Thanks to the ASPCA grant All adoptable pets were spayed, neutered, and rabies vaccinated allowing the Animal Shelter to waive all fees. Pet owners paid $5 to get their pet’s photo taken with Santa. There were raffles, door prizes and by the end of the day, they raised $850.

Accounting Department Update – Oct 2018

Capital and Debt Reports: I would like to thank Jennifer Evans and Jennifer Suter for their work on the Debt and Capital Reports which have been placed on the county website under the Accounting Department.

2019 Budget: The budget book is nearing completion and will be published before the newsletter is published. We are supplementing this year’s budget book with information that should make it easier to understand where our money is spent.

Student Volunteer Program: We have finished our Tennessee Scholar Volunteer program for this past summer. We appreciate Elijah Breaszale and Bailey Barding for taking time out of their summer schedule to help with filing and data entry. Elijah and Bailey are pictured below receiving her certificates.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact our office. Any staff member will be happy to serve you. Have a blessed Fall Season, and If you have any family members or friends dealing with the east coast hurricane, I hope they are safe.

Accounting Department Update – Aug 2018

{Connie Aytes – Director of Accounts and Budgets}

2019 Budget: Now that the budget has been passed our office is working hard to make sure that we have all the accounts properly budgeted before we roll the budget to the new year. We are hoping to have the budget books completed by the first week in August. Once those are completed, we will post the budget to the website and distributed to the Commissioners.

Capital, Debt, Popular Annual Financial Reports & Operational Statement: Our office is responsible for the completion of the Capital and Debt Reports and the Operational Statement. Those reports are in the process of being completed. Once we get those completed, they will be uploaded to our website. This year we are going to attempt to produce a “Popular Annual Financial Report” (PAFR). This report will summarize the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2018. This report should be completed by October of this year. Fiscal Year Ending: Our Fiscal Year Ending June 30th is almost completed, and our new year July 1st has an approved budget with NO tax increase. I want to take this time to thank all of my Accounting Staff for their hard work and dedication to complete our year under budget. We will not know the final results of our Fiscal year until next March, but all accounts are looking great.

Student Volunteer Program: For the past few weeks, our office and the office of the County Executive have teamed up with Tennessee Scholar Volunteer allowing high school students to complete their required community service hours. We had the pleasure of having Marisa Klein as our first volunteer this year to come work at our office. The duties she performed was, filing invoices both current and prior year and keying in budget figures into excel worksheets for our budget books. Marisa is pictured below receiving her certificate along with myself and Ron Woody.
