County wraps up budget requests presentations

While subdivision regulations were the dominate topic at Monday’s Montague County Commissioner’s Court meeting, the court also wrapped up presentations of budget requests from county officials.
Commissioners heard brief presentations from the county treasurer and county attorney, plus the district attorney’s office on their budget requests.
Treasurer LaVonda Langford said her only change was the proposed five percent pay increase, plus a small increase in machinery.
County Attorney Clay Riddle asked for a slight increase in equipment to buy a new computer to help keep the office on a good replacement cycle. He also asked to boost the part-time line item by $5,000.
District Attorney Casey Polhemus asked to add $1,000 more in trial expense and an increase in communications by $600. She also would like to replace the investigator’s Tahoe which is 2012 with 125,000 miles on it and experiencing ongoing mechanical problems.

The sheriff also made a request to buy new in-car cameras and presented his monthly report of activity.
