Lawrence Co. Commission approves new budget

LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Lawrence County hopes a new budget will put them back on track. The county commission approved the plan at its meeting Monday morning.

They're hoping to put a string of bad fiscal years behind them. In July, the state announced it would audit the county.

Commissioners blames poor bookkeeping for several problems and shortfalls in recent years. But they also say those issues are resolved and they're moving forward.

However, the recent decision by International Paper to leave the county has them being cautious.

County employees did not receive any raises in this year's budget.
