MERRILL – The Lincoln County Board of Supervisors approved the county’s 2020 budget at a special meeting at the Lincoln County Service Center in Merrill Tuesday, Nov. 12. Supervisors passed the budget unanimously, with an abstention from District 1 Supervisor William Bialecki.
No changes were made to the preliminary budget that was completed last month.
The overall budget dropped about 26% from last year, almost entirely due to Pine Crest Nursing Home and Lincoln Industries no longer being included in the budget, coming in at about $40.5 million, a $14.8 million decrease.
