Layoffs likely if Belknap County is to satisfy court order

LACONIA - County Commissioner John Thomas of Belmont, who chairs the Belknap County Commission, said yesterday that when the commission meets this evening it will "weigh its options" for addressing a court order prohibiting the commissioners from spending more money from any line item in the county budget than the convention appropriated to it and from transferring more than $300 from any line item without the express approval of the Belknap County Convention.
