Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom began the budget process Tuesday morning by discussing budgets of the four County Commissioners. Judge Newsom anticipates no increase in their road budgets due to projected appraised taxable property value that shows very little or no increase. Eventually Judge Newsom will interview every elected official. He wonders what the impact of the new county jail project will be on the budget. Judge Newsom is hoping to have a new budget by September 1.
