Lee County Commissioners consider budget changes

Posted: Updated:

Lee County-  Lee County Commissioners will be faced with a tough decision when they take up their budget Tuesday.

Commissioners must decide whether to cut services, raise the millage, or impose a Fire/EMS fee to balance their budget.

Commissioners will hold a budget workshop tomorrow at 2:00 in the Assembly Room of the County Administration Building. They canceled a scheduled meeting last week, when several commissioners said they needed more time to review their options. A week ago commissioners revealed their proposed 21 million dollar budget was 1.2 million dollars short.

Since then commissioners have been working through the already tight budget to see what can be eliminated.
