ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County commissioners will have to look somewhere other than a wheel tax increase to eliminate the impending $2 million deficit they face on the upcoming 2017-18 fiscal year budget.

Following a lengthy discussion Monday, Commissioner Shane Bailey, who chairs the Budget Committee, withdrew the committee’s wheel tax increase resolution.

This contains the majority of the discussion Monday night on the wheel tax issue.
