The board looked over their fiscal year budget for the 2014-15 year.
“It’s give and take,” said Lowell Hinton, board president. “We’ve got to make changes to some requests in order for our overall budget to work.”
The board discussed budget request increases from Bob Moore who provides attorney and legal services for the office, along with increase requests from the county’s two public defenders.
The budgets of the other organizations including Corinth-Alcorn Joint Airport, Crossroads Museum, Red Cross, Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter, Corinth Area Arts Council, Corinth Library, Department of Humane Services, SAFE, the Humane Resource Department and the Jacinto Foundation were also discussed at length.
The board will hold their second budget workshop on Monday at 9 a.m., at the supervisors office on Fulton Street.
“We’ll be finalizing all requests and talking about the millage rate and general county budgets on Monday,” added Hinton.
