Lexington Still Working to Balance Budget
Lexington leaders are down to just a few days to make a final decision of how to balance the city’s budget. Mayor Bobby Dyer tells us although the aldermen have met several times in the past few weeks, they still have not even attempted to vote on the budget for this fiscal year. When the board met Tuesday night, Dyer said they discussed cutting life insurance benefits for city employees, $92,000 in city paving projects and a police department position. However, he said there have been no talks of increasing taxes. According to Mayor Dyer, the board must come to an agreement by Monday in order for them to get the budget to Nashville in time for the October 1 deadline.
