Budget Review Rescheduled for Feb. 8

The City Council’s annual mid-year budget review has been rescheduled for its February regular meeting.
The review had originally been scheduled for the Jan. 27 study session, which takes place on the last Friday morning of each month. Now, the review will be at the Feb. 8 meeting, which begins at 6 p.m.
The mid-year review allows the City Council to discuss and make any fiscal changes to the current fiscal cycle to ensure the city’s budget breaks even and typically precedes the planning of next year’s budget.
Interim City Manager Cindy Collins said she expects two significant changes in this review. The Fire Department’s budget will need additional money for overtime and City Hall will need more money because one position was contracted out this year to replace an employee who has been on an extended leave.
Collins did not specify a reason for the meeting change.
