HOWARD COUNTY - Howard County Commissioners are having a special meeting on Monday to discuss some budgeting issues between the City and the County.

Howard County Judge Mark Barr says that there are several discrepancies between the two when it comes to funding things like the senior citizens center and the city's old landfill.

Both the City and Howard County recently announced lower property tax rates, so neither have a lot of elbow room when it comes to their budgets.

All of the city officials are included in this meeting to get these issues squared away.

The meeting will take place at 10 am in the old commissioner's courtroom at the Howard County Courthouse.
