Brundidge City budget on track

Published 3:00 am Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The Brundidge City Council reviewed Tuesday how January’s expenditures matched up against the budget the council set out for the year, and so far the budget is right on track.

City Manager Britt Thomas explained that since January was the fourth month of the fiscal year, each category should theoretically be at 33 percent.

Most categories were within a few percentage points of that number, whether over or under, with a few exceptions. The overall General Fund expenditures are nearly perfectly on pace at 32 percent of the budgeted number. General Fund revenues are only at 14 percent, but Thomas said much of the State and County revenue comes in at once, skewing the timeline.

Local revenue, however, is already at 42 percent of what was budgeted for.

Total utility fund revenues came in at 29 percent of what was budgeted for, but expenditures also came in under budget at 28 percent of the budgeted numbers.

In other business the council:

• Appointed Molly Casey and Amanda Green to the Library Board.

• Declared Good Friday a City holiday.

• Heard from Wanda Vinson, new manager of the Brundidge Nutrition Center, on how her work there is going.
