News 3 Network: Navasota Examiner

Budget talks continue in Grimes County with Commissioner Pam Finke now in the driver's seat.
She took over for Judge Betty Shiflett who was recently hospitalized with walking pneumonia.

Shiflett is now recovering at home.

The changes were based on recommendations from county commissioners and department heads.
