The City of South Padre Island met Wednesday, July 20, to discuss the upcoming 2012 fiscal year budget.
The council listened as City Manager Joni Clarke presented numbers for various departments. As the list went on, council members felt the need to postpone all decisions on the budget until they have had the chance to examine all aspects of each department more closely and get the final numbers that have yet to be reported.
Of the numbers reveled in the meeting, it is reported that the excess reserve fund calculation is set at $826,823 with the current budget rough draft and the street maintenance fund was projected at $35,783.
