After a long Saturday workshop and some discussion, Rhome officials are ready to move forward with a financial plan for the upcoming fiscal year.

At its meeting Thursday, the city council approved an $1,834,578 budget for 2014-2015.

It will be funded, in part, by a $0.5833 tax rate, also approved at Thursday’s meeting.

Although the overall budget has a surplus of $1,687.55, it features a deficit of $327,423.29 in the police department fund.

Stories on the budget ran in the Wednesay, Aug. 13, and Wednesday, Aug. 6, editions of the Messenger.
