GNB Update

It's time for yet another edition of "Hyperlocal Wednesday" on GNB...Here's the news...

The Calhoun Times reports that commissioners in Gordon County will soon give the OK to a new budget for fiscal year 2011. But the news is not all good. County Administrator Randy Downing told the Times that Gordon expects to face a budgetary shortfall of around $1.5 million. That means the county must rely on reserves to cover it. The final budget is expected to be approved in June.
