Board flip-flops on Burningtown fire tax increase
After weeks of meetings and deliberations among community members and the county commissioners, Macon County officially has a budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. In a vote of 3-2, the budget was put into place and will take effect on July 1. Commissioners Ron Haven and Paul Higdon opposed the budget as presented.
"I have to vote against this budget," said Haven. "There are just some things in it that sit heavy on my heart that I can't support."
