Shelby Co. Commission Racing To Get Budget Approved

(Memphis, TN) — Time is running out for the Shelby County Commission to approve next year’s budget. Commissioners spent hours working on the budget in committee yesterday. Shelby County Schools advocates are urging commissioners to okay millions in new academic investments, as well as tens of millions in capital improvements due to deferred maintenance of facilities. The commission is hoping to approve the budget Monday, which is the last scheduled meeting before the end of the fiscal year at the end of June.
