Commissioners, Excise Board OK County Budget

The Murray County Board of Commissioners and the Murray County Excise Board approved the finalization of the Murray County budgets in a joint session on Monday. All three commissioners and excise board members were present at the meeting. According to commissioners, an over estimation in revenue resulted in a $320,000 budget short fall. The commissioners voted to make up the short fall from the county sales tax funds rather than cutting budget requests.
In public presentations, the board heard from former Arbuckle Memorial Hospital Administrator Darin Farrell who introduced interim administrator Sallie Tomlinson. Farrell thanked the board for their support of the hospital and him during the past 13 plus years.
