City Manager David Harden presented the proposed $97 million budget to the City Commission Tuesday, but with only $93 million in revenues from property taxes, the Commission will have to find a way to plug the $4 million hole.
Harden recommends the city takes $1.6 million from last year’s surplus to fund the increase in capital costs, leaving the commission with the task of finding additional revenues or making about $2.4 million in cuts.
