Bibb budget hearing scheduled for today

The Bibb County Commission will hold a hearing today on its proposed $89.7 million fiscal 2010 budget.The hearing will take place at 10 a.m. in the commission’s board room, located on the fourth floor of the Bibb County Courthouse on Mulberry Street.

Commissioners whittled down the budget from the roughly $96 million in budget requests they received this year.

The proposed budget originally was $1.4 million short of being balanced, but that amount has since been included in property tax revenue projections.

Commissioners must adopt a budget before the new fiscal year begins July 1.
