Warren County commissioners made several cuts to the budget for fiscal year 2016-17 after taking a look at the bottom line.Budget and Finance Committee members Terry Bell, chair, Carl E. Bouldin, Ken Martin, Michael Martin and Diane Starkey met Thursday for a review of the consolidated budget after meeting on Tuesday and approving departmental budgets. Finance Department director Linda Hillis presented the information, and Bell says it isn’t good news. “If we want to give everyone a 50-cent-an-hour raise, we would be down to $131,000 fund balance,” said Bell.
