County tentatively bumps millage rate by 3 mills

Grady County Commissioners met for just over four hours Friday and Monday afternoons reviewing the proposed 2019 operating budget and looking for opportunities to reduce expenses.
The board has eliminated any cost of living raises and bonuses for county personnel and has not ruled out making cuts to the county’s workforce.
