Lula looks at budget decrease
BY JUSTIN POOLE
The proposed 2009 budget for the city of Lula is $91,295 less than the current budget for the town.
The Lula City Council heard from city manager, Dennis Bergin, during a meeting last week.
The general revenue fund for fiscal year 2009 is estimated at $629,454. The current general fund budget is $720,749. Bergin told the council that a lot of the decrease is due to the current economy.
The public is invited to attend three public hearings on the matter. The first will be June 9 before the council’s work session. The next two public hearings will be June 10, with the first set for mid-morning and the other for mid-afternoon.
