The Christian County Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to cut the salaries of county board members, as well as the county board chairman. The move is aimed to help reduce the budget deficit that the Board is facing.
County Board Chairman Tim Carlson says the move was the biggest highlight of a generally positive meeting of the Christian County Board.
Carlson says the board is just trying to do their part in helping cut the budget deficit. Carlson said over a ten year span, the move is expected to save the county quite a bit of money.
The next meeting of the Christian County Board will take place on March 21st at 6:30 in the Christian County Courthouse.
