  • Magistrates make budget cut proposals

    One month after being asked to find $150,000 to $250,000 to trim out of the Henry County budget, the committee appointed to do so devised a series of proposals that could result in at least a $290,000 gain.

    Magistrate Nick Hawkins chaired the committee, and last week presented several proposals to the fiscal court.

    The bulk of the gain relies upon non-emergency EMS transports, to the tune of $150,000 to $300,000 per year.

    Andrew Shearer hopes to see his students fail. He considers it the key to their success.

    That will soon change, as the volunteers will merge with the paid service, as announced last week during the regular meeting of the Henry County Fiscal Court.
