Tomorrow's 4:30 study session will have Bobby Young give Council Members the mid-year budget review.
On the whole, it is very good news. Property, TOT and sales taxes are up and combined with other savings we won't need to take drastic measures to balance the budget.
The shortfall is $1.387,192 instead of $6 million. Cuts we considered last year, but did not make, will be presented to the Council. And we won't have to use our fund balance--those reserves set aside to use for "restricted" accounts.
