Kaercher, a Democrat who is facing Sun River Republican Randy Pinocci in the race for Public Service Commission, added that Tuesday he notified the council of some minor changes made to the budget. One was a change in the general fund because the pool’s pump had a failure, with a replacement cost of $5,700. The other was making some adjustments to match the Tri-Agency Task Force grant recently approved by the council. Neither change altered the total appropriations.
