A resolution calling for the state of Arkansas and Miller County to split the cost of new election equipment for the county was approved Tuesday by the Miller County Budget and Finance Committee.
The resolution will be presented Monday to the full Quorum Court.
"The new equipment is being tested, and it looks good," County Judge Roy John McNatt said.
The Arkansas Secretary of State's Office has solicited bids for a new voting system and awarded the contract to the Elections Systems & Software. Other details about the purchase were not listed in the resolution.
The Miller County Equalization Board recently conducted its final session and listened to 37 appeals regarding property taxes. The three-member board received $100 per diem, plus travel and expenses. The final session was Sept. 11.
The budget committee approved moving $1,804.09 from the general fund to the courthouse security grant program. The courthouse security had overspent the $1,804.09.
The budget committee also approved the transfer of $13,868 from the general fund to the recorder office to finish funding a part-time employee who records documents for the remainder of the year.
