Warren County commissioners went back to the drawing board to balance the budget for fiscal year 2016-17 after a proposed property tax increase was rejected last week. “I guess we’ll talk about the general fund and start over with the budget because our tax increase did not pass the other night,” said Budget and Finance Committee chair Terry Bell. Bell informed committee members Carl E. Bouldin, Ken Martin and Michael Martin that he sat down with Finance Department director Linda Hillis to review the budget, specifically projected revenue within the proposed budget.“I went to Linda the next day after we had our meeting and had her take a look at some of the revenues that we had down on our revenue side.
