The county's Budget committee will meet Tuesday and continue to look into departmental budgets for several agencies. The meeting will begin at 5:30 on the second floor of the Rutherford County Courthouse. Among the budgets being examined will be Property Assessor, County Mayor, County Commission, County Trustee, County Clerk and more. Budget meetings will continue as those on the committee race to finish up before the new fiscal year starts on July 1st. The total expected budget for the county for the next fiscal year is over 506-million dollars. That's nearly five-and-a-half percent more than the current year's budget and may include a property tax hike to fund it.
