Big Spring Budget Taking Another Big Hit

Staff Report

BIG SPRING - The Big Spring budget is taking another big hit.

The City tells NewsWest 9, the Howard County Appraisal District mistakenly appraised a drilling rig in the county.

That drilling rig's $6.6 million dollar appraisal was already tied to another county and should not have been counted.

The mistake will take about $67,000 out of Big Spring's general fund.

Another appraisal error earlier this year cost the city's budget $91,000.

The Council will adjust their budget on Tuesday night.
