Cracking Down on the Budget
BATON ROUGE (WGMB) - East Baton Rouge Mayor President Kip Holden isn't asking department heads in the parish to trim budgets - he's ordering it.
Holden sent out an e-mail to department leaders last week.
He says leaders that don't turn in trimmed budgets could be looking for other work.
Holden says if he wasn't so determined to slice the budget - furloughs, leave days, even other jobs could be on the line.
