Houston County’s new budget could mean a pay raise for county employees.
The new budget, worth a little more than $30 million, should include a cost of living increase for county employees.
It will also include fuel costs, and health insurance benefits.
$16 million is set aside for the general budget.
Even though revenues and expenses are up more than $1 million, $4 million has been set aside in the county's reserve balance.
The county commission will vote on the budget in the county commission meeting next week.
