At its meeting last Tuesday evening, the Cadiz City Council unanimously approved, on second readings, both the city’s budget for the 2012/2013 fiscal year and an amendment the current fiscal year’s budget.

“So we’re in business again, it looks like,” said Cadiz Mayor Lyn Bailey.

Both were decided by roll-call votes after no discussions of either budget.

The $3.9 million budget includes a 3-percent across-the-board raise for all city employees. Cadiz City Councilor Manuel Brown – who also chairs the city’s Finance Committee – said he feels good about the budget in light of the current economic conditions.

The $3,907,778 budget, which would go into effect when the 2012/2013 fiscal year starts on Sunday, July 1, includes $2,288,358 in General Fund revenue, $52,910 in Municipal Road Aid revenue, $1,562,498 in Water Fund revenue and $4,012 in revenue in “Other Funds.”

Although the total revenue and expenditures are the same, there is $2,297,280 in expenditures in the General Fund, $1,562,498 in expenditures in the Water Fund and $48,000 in expenditures in the Municipal Road Aid fund. There are no expenditures under “Other Funds.”
