TYLER - Tuesday, Smith County Commissioners met to discuss more ways on how to balance the budget. Smith County is expecting to cut at least $5 million dollars from its 2011 budget. Friday Smith County Judge Joel Baker will propose the new budget plan to the court to look over. August 2nd, the commissioners will review current county tax rates. Commissioner Warr says the sooner the jail plans to expand get on the ballot the better. Commissioners Phillips and Hampton say there are other options to make cuts along with the possibility of raising taxes.
