June 11, 2008
Lee County- Despite Lee County Commissioners' promise to property owners last night not to raise taxes, Lee County residents may have to pay for the budget shortfall another way.
Numbers show despite holding off on capital expenditures and cutting two new fire stations the county is still short 1.3 million dollars to balance next year's budget.
Wednesday we were told Commissioners will meet next Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. to discuss more possible cuts and additional revenue sources. Many cuts have already been made to heavy equipment purchases and the county will lose the planned upgrades for its web site.
WALB News Ten has learned that additional revenue may come from the previously mentioned Fire and EMS fee.
