First look at Hamilton County budget

By WRCB Staff

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- Hamilton County Commissioners got their first look at the proposed $638 million budget, Thursday morning.

The budget says $372 million will go to schools.

The budget boosts corrections spending by more then $800,000. It also includes more than $330,000 for Regional Planning Commission and more than $360,000 for a nature park at Enterprise South.

The budget does not provide raises for county workers and does not increase property taxes. It, also, does not anticipate layoffs.

County Commissioners could vote on August 12.
