County Clerk Bill Knowles said today he will remit $1,790,740 in excess fees this fiscal year to county general government. This total includes $575,511 that will be turned over this week to Finance Director Al Kiser.
Mr. Knowles said, “I am pleased to be able to remit $575,511 in additional excess fees to county general government since our report last September. This fiscal year total of $1,790,740 is another healthy amount remitted to the general government. Many dollars were earned through extra work the office provided by performing state services locally through agreements made with the Tennessee Departments of Revenue and Safety.
“It is a pleasure taking on added responsibilities to serve the public more efficiently, and at the same time earning additional funds for Hamilton County."
