Christian County Judge Executive Steve Tribble unveiled his proposed $24.5 million dollar budget for the upcoming fiscal year this morning.
During today’s Christian Fiscal Court meeting, Judge Tribble described his proposed budget as balanced during a time of economic uncertainty and that the county was not immune from cuts.
The proposed budget includes a 2.9 percent cost of living pay increase for all county employees, with the exception of magistrates.
Judge Tribble says the proposed budget also includes no increases in health benefits.
Magistrates unanimously approved the first reading of the proposed budget and will likely vote on it next month.
