Controversial County Budget Officer Resigns

Smith County Budget Officer Jeff Clark resigns after 10 months on the job.

Last year, Clark was under fire for writing a budget that, among other things, called for the elimination of 16 county jobs.

The Commissioners Court now plans to re-evaluate his position at its Monday meeting. Commissioner Joann Fleming says the court will discuss the possibility of changing the job description of the person who will handle the court's budget.
