Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters adopted a budget on Wednesday that he says will be realistic based on expected revenue for the county.  The $12.3 Million budget included some increases for certain areas of county government, including the Sheriff’s department and the jail, while other department’s budgets were decreased.

Commissioner Winters told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio that he drafted the budget and tried to base it on reasonable numbers that the various county offices could operate within.  A hearing on the budget was held last week at the Commissioner’s office in Summerville.
