No members of the public commented on the budget during a public hearing that opened Monday’s city council meeting.
The general fund budget is set at $3.96 million, an $80,000 increase from last year’s budget.
“We have added a position in the police department, and we have re-coded a position in the police department,” City Manager Rob Logan said.
The capital grants budget is the next highest budget category, coming in at $3.04 million, including a sidewalk grant for the city.
The city will use funds from SPLOST III and SPLOST IV during the 2013 fiscal year. The budget for the SPLOST III fund is $926,645, and the budget for SPLOST IV is $1.94 million. All of the SPLOST III money will be used for debt service, Logan said.
The city’s operating grant fund comes in at $285,100. The city has budgeted $265,500 for the stormwater fund.
A budget of $186,000 is slated for the city’s parks and recreation fund.
City officials expect a little over $4,000 in revenues from hotel/motel taxes, the same amount as last year.
