Lee County-  Lee County Commissioners are going back to the drawing board with their budget. Budget hearings scheduled this morning and Tuesday were canceled.

They don't want to have public discussions until they further review the budget. The proposed 21-million dollar budget is short 1.2-million dollars in revenue.

Monday night, Commissioners talked about an ordinance that would implement a $250 Fire/EMS fee for county residents and businesses.

Commissioners now say they're going back through each item and taking out what's unnecessary before they decide whether to raise taxes, implement the fee, or cut services.
