CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Hamilton County Commissioners Joe Graham and Marty Haynes will get their wish to put their discretionary money back to the county's rainy day fund.

The commission voted 7-2 Wednesday morning to allow the District 6 and 3 representatives to, as they put it, do as their district wants and put the money back in the reserve fund.

Each commissioner gets $100,000 to spend as they see fit in their county.

At one point in the meeting, District 3 Commissioner Warren Mackey made the motion to move their combined $200,000 to Orange Grove Center in his district. That motion failed.
