Knox County Budget Debate
Broadcast Date: June 3, 2012
Knox County commissioners are set to vote on the budget. The big question is whether or not commissioners give Knox County Schools the additional $35 million being requested, even though that could mean a tax increase. The superintendent says the additional money could mean accelerated education for students, while the mayor says the citizens of Knox County can't afford a tax increase.
For the entire program this week, Erica Estep talks about the budget with Mayor Tim Burchett, Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre, and At-large Commissioner Ed Shouse.
