August 9, 2011

City Manager Gary Fuqua presented the Big Spring City Council with the proposed 2011-2012 budget during a work session Monday, and much like life in sweltering West Texas has been, it was a good news and bad news fiscal situation.

The proposed budget is based on a 94.95-cent per $100 valuation tax rate, a drop of 5 cents compared to last year's 99.95 cent rate.

The Lady Steers take the court this year with an experienced team, having lost only three players to graduation this last summer. Head Coach Lynn Osborne said she was ready to get the girls on the court and see what they could do.
