Temple Employees Getting Paid

Temple city employees are receiving pay checks for the first time in nearly a month after city council passes an emergency 30-day budget Friday.
Mayor Lester Harmon has blamed the delay on concerns that the city was operating with a budget that was passed illegally by the previous administration.
Harmon has been cheered for his stance on fixing the alleged illegalities; but others have called his actions a “political stunt;” and at least one council member spoke against the delay, saying that short of a court injunction nothing should stop the city from paying its workers.
