Saline County Collector Grace Miles submitted a summary of December 2009 property tax collections at the Saline County Commission meeting Wednesday morning, Jan. 13.
In total, $10,169,773.86 was collected, though Miles said the number should have been about $15 million.
The majority of the funds, $6,203,753.832, was distributed to area school districts, with Marshall receiving $3,581,253.63.
In other business, commissioners approved the employment of Aubrey Kemerling in the county recorder's office beginning Jan. 11. She will work full-time for $10 an hour.
Presiding Commissioner Becky Plattner was quick to point out that Kemerling's position is not a new one; rather she is replacing someone else.
Commissioners will meet again Thursday, Jan. 14, at 9 a.m.
