This year's unusually mild winter is good news for Callaway County's budget.
Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann said Friday the mild winter will translate into major savings for the county.
"The mild winter will have several impacts on our county budget. The lack of substantial freezing and thawing means our county roads are in much better shape than they normally would be this time of the year. We won't have the expense of using a lot of crushed rock to repair the roads along with the crews using equipment and using expensive gasoline," Jungermann said.
