The county’s 2016/2017 budget is down more than $900,000 from last year’s.
At a special-called Taylor County Fiscal Court meeting Friday afternoon, magistrates unanimously approved, on second reading, a $10,447,773 budget. There was no discussion of the budget.
Last year’s budget was $11,377,958, so the new budget, which takes effect July 1, is approximately $930,000 less.
“We cut as much as we can,” said Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers. “We have some people pulling double or triple duty.”
