County Sets Proposed Budget

The last of several budget workshops was held this week in Angelina County.

All county employees will get a five percent raise, but several departments will have less money to work with next year.

The Commissioners Court cut the sheriff's budget by a $100,000.

Angelina County's proposed budget is just over $18 million. That's $1.6 million more than last year.

The county will have a final vote in a few weeks after two public hearings are held.
