COQUILLE — The Coos County Commissioners officially adopted a $22.9 million budget for the 2013-2014 year Tuesday, Commissioner Melissa Cribbins said.

The county has about a $3 million shortfall on the budget for the upcoming year and is drawing from forest funds to close the gap.

It has two to three years before it runs out of the funds.

Other items at the meeting were:

  • Approval of $200,000 to the Parks Department for improvements to Riley Ranch.
  • Approval of $30,500 to the Crime Assistance Department because a grant was denied. The department would’ve lost its only two employees if the money wasn’t approved, Cribbins said.

The next commissioners meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. July 16 in the Owen Building.
