LAUREL HILL — The City Council has raised no concerns with the proposed 2014 fiscal year budget.
City leaders have reviewed the budget in two portions: the enterprise operating fund, or water department fund, and the general operating fund.
The city expects to collect $217,400 from water department and garbage fees for the enterprise fund. It projects to spend $200,944, earning the city $16,456.
In the proposed general operating fund, the city would earn $227,374 from taxes, city fees and contracts. For expenses, the city is expected to pay $221,164, leaving $6,210.
Between the enterprise fund and the general operating fund, the city is expected to earn $22,666 for the next fiscal year.
The proposal, produced by Mayor Robby Adams with council chairman Larry Hendren’s assistance, was presented to each council member present during Thursday’s budget workshop. Councilman Clifton Hall was absent.
The next budget workshop is 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10 at City Hall.
A public hearing on a Community Development Block Grant the city is trying to acquire will follow the workshop; the regular city council meeting will follow at 6 p.m., after which a fair housing workshop will take place.
The informational workshop, which is required for the CDBG application, will provide examples of housing discrimination.
