mum circumstances, the record:

$2.4 million more than is needed to
meet the year's budget.

the fee hike could produce extra
revenue, commenting, "If there's
any extra money in there, I'd sure

LAST YEAR'S BUDGET was set a inst
at $39.6 million, and suffered a g
deficit of approximately $800,00Q,
leaving fee income at approximate-
ly 538.8 million. From this figure,
