County wrestles with budget woes
Although no board action was taken, Douglas County commissioners listened to a presentation about the county's budget at its regular meeting Tuesday morning.
Tom Reddick, Douglas County auditor/treasurer, explained to four of the commissioners - Jerry Johnson was absent - that currently, the county is $1.8 million over its levy limits.
However, Reddick stressed that the figures are still preliminary because he doesn't know what will happen at the state level.
