Long County Superior Court Clerk Sherry Long recently reported that her office collected $1,028,128 from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013.
“My office has worked very hard over the last year to collect this money, and I am proud of their efforts,” Long said.
The funds were collected from superior- and state-court fines and fees, according to the court clerk. She said that a substantial portion of the money also could be attributed to the Long County Sheriff’s Office using a new tag reader that is installed on one of the patrol vehicles.
From the pool of money, $693,085 was given back to Long County. The breakdown of funds has $43,273 coming from the jail fund, $49,057 coming from the superior-court transfer tax, $110,217 coming from the superior-court intangible tax and $490,538 coming from the superior- and state-court general fund. Long said the $335,043 difference from the $1,028,128 went to mandated state costs.
Long said the amount collected in 2013 substantially increased from 2012 collections. The rise in state-court revenue was $275,714, and the superior-court revenue increase for the same time period was $56,815.
“I just want the people of Long County to know that we are doing our best to do a good job for the county, and the increase in funds collected is just one of the ways that the hard work is paying off,” Long said.
