The county just sent over some information about Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett's proposed budget. Here's the story I just posted a little while ago.
Here's the county's spin, written by communications manager Michael Grider, although I'm sure the chief of staff, Dean Rice, was somehow involved. Heh.
Right here is a copy of the mayor's speech that he delivered to the county commission today. (Note: Commissioners Amy Broyles and Tony Norman were not there.)The mayor swears he wrote this himself. I don't know, though. It's absent a lot of his humor. But then again, laying off people isn't exactly a funny thing, either.
And, if you're really bored and you want to go to another budget presentation, the mayor will be meeting all week with the public. Here's the schedule.
