Council moves ahead on budget

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Sam Glover
The Brazil City Council met Wednesday night for a budget meeting where it made its first concrete decision pertaining to the 2012 budget.

The council voted all in favor to pass the plan for all departments to return to their 2011 budgets, with the exception of police and fire.

Councilman Sam Glover made the motion.

"I'm going to make the motion that we submit to Karen (McQueen, Clerk-Treasurer), the 2012 budget levels for the fire and police departments that were submitted and ask all the other departments to remain at 2011 budget levels with the exception of projected cost for insurance increases," Glover said.

The idea was tossed around at previous meetings, but the council was hesitant to act until it had gathered all the necessary information.

Because the budget needs to be adopted by Oct. 26, the council felt it was necessary to make the motion now so McQueen has a direction to take toward ratifying the final budget.

The Brazil City Council will meet next Wednesday, Oct. 12, for its regular monthly meeting and may meet Oct. 19, if any further budget talks are needed. Meetings take place at Brazil City Hall and typically start at 7 p.m.
