It’s budget crunch time in Miller County…the county commission has set aside Wednesday and Friday mornings of this week to hear from the various elected officials and department heads what their funding requests are for the next fiscal year. The recorder, assessor, treasurer, collector, University Extension, soil and water, public administrator, emergency management and the sheriff’s department will be first up on Wednesday. 911, coroner, circuit and county clerks, the judges, the surveyor, prosecuting attorney and the county commission itself will bring the curtain down Friday on the budget hearings. The budget hearings begin at 8:30 both mornings at the courthouse in Tuscumbia.
