Commissioners Upset Over Budget Issues
Carter County Commissioner Tom Bowers says heís trying to save his county money by canceling a commission meeting. County Mayor Leon Humphrey says commissioners need to meet on a monthly basis, no matter what, because thatís what they are elected to do. The controversy stems from a canceled meeting, the third canceled this fiscal year. Each time county leaders meet, the 24 commissioners each receive $100 a full meeting, and $50 for each committee meeting they attend. Bowers says since nothing pressing was on the agenda, meeting would only unnecessarily cost tax payers $2400. Humphrey says they need to make a budget and stick to it.
