The Winnebago County Court system is looking for ways to become more economically efficient amid budget concerns.
The 17th Circuit Court announced Tuesday that it received a $50,000 grant from the State to fund a study aimed at discovering methods to best handle it’s finances.
The team who will be working with the court will include experts in finance, business management, and court case flow management.
“We feel that, getting the assistance of these outside experts will help be another set of eyes available to us, to examine our processes and see if there are advancements and improvements in efficiencies we might be able to achieve,” said Chief Judge Eugene Doherty.
The County, as a whole, currently faces a $2.4 million deficit.
The results of the court’s study will be made public early next year.
