The Russell County Commissioners met Monday and approved the 2023 County budget.

After numerous discussions and hearings in recent weeks, Commissioner Daron Woelk said no changes were made to the budget from the proposed version weeks ago.

The budget lowers the mill levy, but due to increased property valuations, the County will actually see increased revenue.
