Local organizations vie for piece of the budget pie

Both the city and Dougherty County have contributed funds to both organizations, but did not include them in this year's budget proposal.
However, the city would have to do a lot of extra cutting to find the money.
"I think they are all considerate of it, but this is a tight budget year and each of them will have to make their own decisions," says Assistant City Manager Wes Smith.
The city's budget already includes a $3 million decrease over last year.
They will have to approve a final budget in two weeks.
