The Roane County Commission approved a budget of $171,350 to go to nonprofit organizations.
Commissioner Ron Berry was the only commissioner to vote no on the budget last week.
Berry expressed concern about the budget’s substantial growth over the past couple of years.
In 2012 the nonprofit budget was $127,850.
“If there was a request made this year, it was sent on,” Berry said.
“Anybody that wanted money this year got money. It just seems like it’s just growing.”
