FULTON – All purchase orders now must come from Itawamba County’s department heads, regardless of the amount.
The Board of Supervisors voted to implement stricter guidelines regarding departmental spending, requiring that all purchases be reviewed and approved by departmental leaders.
The change in policy is an extension to guidelines voted into place recently, which held department heads responsible for any purchases in excess of $100. Board members said that money is tight and department heads are simply going to have to find ways to cut expenses.
