Brundidge council expects revenue decline in budget consideration

Published 3:00 am Wednesday, October 18, 2017

The Brundidge City Council worked from a two-item agenda Tuesday night that included a review of the proposed FY2018 budget and a review of the FY2017 August financials.

Brundidge City Manger Britt Thomas said not all of the necessary information was worked out at the council’s budget work session on October 9 and there is an expected decline in revenue to be considered. Thomas said the council had the option of approving the FY2018 budget or carrying it over until additional information could be considered.

Council Member Margaret Ross, District 3 asked about a budget request for funding from the Pioneer Museum of Alabama, which was included in the budget but no amount was designated.

She also asked if the Brundidge Historical Society received any city funds to assist with the annual Peanut Butter Festival. Thomas said no financial assistance is given, however, the city provides in-kind services for the annual harvest and heritage festival.

Ross made a motion that the city include $1,000 in the FY2018 budget for both the Pioneer Museum of Alabama and the BHS. The motion died for the lack of a second.

Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport introduced Officer Sylvia Summers of Enterprise as a new member of the Brundidge Police Department.
