Montgomery Commissioners' "Cash Crunch"
Tuesday, 13 October 2009

October 13--  Montgomery County commissioners made some cuts to the county's budget Monday in an effort to end the fourth quarter in the black.

County employees under the commissioners control will be furloughed three days, the county transit service is being reduced from two vans to one, non-mandatory training and travel is being curtailed, and the commissioners are giving up their monthly salary in November.  Those cuts could save up to $14,000.

The commissioners also voted to ask Toombs County Commissioners to deed them half of the 58 acres in the Ailey Industrial Park which is jointly owned by the two counties.

The commission was informed that Handy Handy will not be locating in the new shopping complex in Mount Vernon.  However, a hardware store company in Hazlehurst will open a store there.  A grand opening is planned in mid-November for both the hardware store and the supermarket now under construction.

The commissioners are also planning to do some grass cutting to help county crews keep up.  They plan to man the mowers Saturday, October 31st to do some mowing on Old River Road.
