Big Spring Holds Emergency Budget Meeting

BIG SPRING - A nine million dollar mistake forced the Big Spring City Council to hold an emergency meeting Wednesday night.

A group of consultants discovered a large business was appraised twice. That means the city won't be getting as much tax revenue as first thought.

That has forced the council to find a way to trim their budget. Some of the suggestions they looked were to reduce expenditures and delay some purchases for this year.
