Madison Co. Commissioners determining 2014 budget

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County Commissioners are coming together to determine next year's budget. On Thursday, the commission will meet with every department head for a budget hearing.

Commissioners will determine a final dollar amount after determining where they can downsize and cut costs.

Chairman Dale Strong said making the most of taxpayer's money is the goal.

"We are having to do more with less. What we are trying to do is give them an opportunity to present their budgets and make recommendations. Some of the departments are already understanding some of the cuts that may be required," said Strong.

Chairman Strong said public safety is the top priority.

Commissioners must have a finalized budget before the next fiscal year begins on October 1st.
