Lewis County will be coming out of its last fiscal year with some extra funds to work with.
At their regular meeting Monday morning, commissioners announced a surplus of almost $4.2 million from last year's budget.
Commissioner Pat Boyle said the county ended the year so well thanks to smart budgeting.
Boyle said every office in the county had a hand in making the surplus so large.
"All the players in the game, all the elected officials in the county are good stewards of the county money, otherwise we wouldn't have this carryover," said Boyle.
Boyle said the remaining $1.6 million will go to the county's general fund.
