County commission to vote on financial allocations

Two annual financial allocations by St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners are expected to be made next week.

During their executive committee meeting Tuesday, commissioners agreed to continue their once-a-year payments to Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services of St. Joseph County, and the Community Health Agency that oversees St. Joseph, Branch and Hillsdale counties.

Finance director Angie Steinman said CMH is expected to receive $257,268. The figure is identical to what it was given last year.

Meanwhile, CHA is in line to receive $313,836. Last year’s allocation was $307,700. The additional revenue was the result of a population increase of the counties it serves, based on U.S. Census figures.

In other action, commissioners also recommended renewing the county’s contract with grant writer James Hissong. That matter, as well as the proposed financial allocations, will appear before commissioners at their board meeting next Tuesday.
