On Tuesday morning, members of the Walker County Commission met to engage in a discussion regarding the impending budget for fiscal year 2024. The meeting served as a platform for department heads within the county to present their perspectives, outlining needs and potential alterations that may be required to shape the forthcoming budget.
While no final decisions were reached or actions taken during this session, valuable insights were garnered, and the county will likely maintain funding level to that of the 2023 budget, with slight adjustments accommodating increased labor costs. The Commission will further evaluate the information received, considering the needs of each department, fiscal constraints, and the overall well-being of the community, with an anticipated timeline for finalizing the 2024 budget set for late August or early September.
