With the exception of the police department fund, Rhome city officials are projecting surplus budgets for the upcoming fiscal year.
The numbers were presented at a budget workshop held earlier this month.
While the PD is looking at a budget deficit of $327,423.29, the court fund has an excess of $176,000, with expenses projected at $177,130 and anticipated revenue at $355,000.
The city anticipates collecting $350,000 on warrants, up $60,000 from the amount budgeted last year.
The water and sewer fund looks to generate $942,600 while spending $918,765.99.
Fire department revenue went from $122,400 budgeted last year to $162,000.
Expenditures are tabbed at $149,951, with the biggest increase a $1,000 bump for training personnel.
In general fund expenses, the city forecasts collecting double the amount on permits – from $25,000 to $50,000.
“There’s been about five businesses that have talked to us,” City Secretary Ramah Burns said. “I believe that as much all the growth is coming out this way, that’s a fair figure.”
The council will consider action on the proposed budget during its regular meeting Thursday.
In addition, they will consider retaining the $0.5833 interest and sinking and $0.4083 maintenance and operations tax rate.
The meeting will begin with a closed session discussion on potential litigation with the park pavilion/concrete and personnel.
In open session, the council will consider those matters as well as water/sewer projects; appointing an alternate judge; purchasing an order system; community center rentals; and selling a skid unit to another fire department.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
