Brundidge budget on financial track

The City of Brundidge is pretty much in line with its budget projections through the first three months of the fiscal year, said City Manager Brit Thomas during his financial report for December 2009 to the Brundidge City Council Tuesday.

“All in all, we’re pretty well on course to be where we thought we would be,” Thomas said.

So far, 24 percent of the budgeted general fund revenues have been collected, while 22 percent of the total general fund expenditures have been recorded.

Thomas also presented the council with an update on the status of the library construction project.

“The wet weather has truly slowed our progress over at the library.” Thomas said. “We’re still working doing other things, but we hope to be able to get back going pretty soon.”

Thomas also informed the council of the relatively quiet day the city enjoyed Feb. 12, when Pike County was hit with winter weather.

“We were real fortunate with the electric system,” Thomas said. “We had a little blink early in the morning and an outage on the north end of town for a little while, but other than that, there weren’t really any problems.”

While the electric system remained in service almost the entire day, almost all aspects of the city enjoyed a largely trouble-free day.

“We were really fortunate with everything, from utilities and services to accidents,” Thomas said. “There were no major accidents in Brundidge, so everything turned out pretty good.”
