The Loudon County Budget Committee will meet on Wednesday, Aug. 26  at  8:30 AM at the County Office Bldg., on River Rd., Loudon.

Once again, the meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held in cramped quarters, the Finance Director's office. The Budget Committee will discuss moving pennies around and finishing last minute budgets.

Yet, to be decided is a pay raise for county employees; will the Budget Committee recommend a 2 percent pay raise as the school budget?

Other items for discussion, the highway department budget and a request for funding from the Education Foundation founded by the Loudon County Chamber of Commerce.
