The City Council approved the final budget for fiscal year 2013 at a special budget meeting May 15.
City Manager Vicki Mayes presented the highlights of the budget, which amounts to roughly $28 million for the general fund and $33 million for the utility fund. The general fund includes allocations for police cruisers, new lawnmowers, upgrades to city computer software/hardware, 100 new golf carts and a contracted attorney.
City Attorney Dave Olsen said the hiring of a contracted attorney, for which $40,000 has been budgeted, will help his office be more efficient.
