Published 7:36pm Thursday, September 22, 2011

The town of Maplesville passed a budget Thursday that accounts for $917,925 in revenue and $901,721 in expenses for a difference of $16,204.

Town Clerk Sheila Haigler said this marks the first time the town has passed a budget before the fiscal year begins in October. This year’s budget was approved in the middle of the fiscal year, Haigler said.

In other business, State Rep. Kurt Wallace presented the town with a check for $4,083.12. Wallace divided his discretionary funds this year between Clanton, Jemison, Maplesville, Thorsby and Wilton. Maplesville’s share of the money will be used in the fire department to get a pumper truck in service and make repairs on a rescue unit.

The council also approved a contract with the Chilton County Sheriff’s Office and Jail to house the town’s inmates. The jail recently raised its rate to $35 a day for an inmate’s first day and $30 a day thereafter.
