DOTHAN, AL -- The Houston County Commission has voted to approve a lump sum payment to retirees. Those affected will receive their one-time payment in the next 2-3 months.
The payment will be made to retirees in an effort to keep up with cost-of-living increases in recent years. The extra funds won't affect Houston County's budget until 2015.
