HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Board of Supervisors were back at crunching numbers Monday morning to ultimately be able to not increase the county's millage.  

The board continued through line items, to see where cutting costs could be done.

Board president Charles Marshall said the county received $50 million worth of new assessments and $20 million in new growth to give a total of $70 million of new assessments.

Only a fraction of that would be revenue, but supervisors are optimistic about keeping taxes down. 

No drastic cuts are expected and so far no talk of layoffs.
