Dooly County Commissioners vote to freeze next year's budget. Many county employees are upset because they probably won't get raises. 

Dooly County's sheriff department was well represented at a public hearing Thursday on the $8.45 million budget that passed by a 3-2 vote. Various department heads voiced concerns over the way money is being allocated. Some say they take in more money than they get back for employee salaries and county projects.

 The commission chairman says the county is feeling the crunch because they took in 3 percent less in property taxes, but they don't want to increase the millage rate.

The budget is set to be adopted September 26th and take effect October 1st.
