Another $800,000 cut from budget

With several more budget meetings to go before an estimated $800,000 more is pared from its budget, Lamar County commissioners hope to have the document ready to go to the state by Aug. 1. Plans called for some commissioners to meet with insurance agents June 29 to look at ways to cut benefits, then more workshops would be held. The target date to finish the document is July 12, with advertising and hearings held through the rest of the month. ’We’ve been going line item through line item looking for waste and duplication of services before getting into personnel issues,’ said commissioner Nancy Thrash at the June 28 meeting.
