by Web Staff - email | Twitter

RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - In Russell County, officials are working to complete the 2010 budget.

County Commissioner Leann Horne and other commissioners plan to meet with all department heads and agencies to discuss their requests.

Horne says the $19 million budget is tight this year-considering these hard economic times, "We have challenges to fund services we currently have. We feel positive that we'll be able to do so this year with frugal budgeting process and trying to trim anyway to control cost where we can control them."

The first meeting is scheduled to be held at the Russell County Government Center next Monday at 3:00 p.m.

Commissioners hope to vote on the new budget in two weeks at the next county commission meeting.
