Smith County Law Enforcement Feeling Pain At The Pump

A couple of Smith County law enforcement agencies are feeling the pain at the pump, having already spent their gas budget for the year.

The Smith County constable Precinct One office is $1,000 over budget. Because of that, Monday the commissioners court approved a $4,000 budget transfer for them to buy gas.

$75,000 was also approved for the Smith County Sheriff's office.

The department is already $35,000 over its gas budget.
