City to begin crafting budget

August 6, 2011

The Big Spring City Council will begin holding its annual budget work sessions — which were originally slated for last week and postponed — Monday evening as the municipality tries to get a handle on its fiscal plan for 2011-2012.

And while budget sessions have traditionally been a time for council members to pitch their pet projects for the coming year, a lack of revenue — due in large part to the ongoing drought and lack of water sales — will most likely keep such plans on the back burner going into the next fiscal year.

The scarcity of funds hasn't stopped the number of essential projects from building up, however, as the city officials continue to stare down the future — and eventual closing — of the municipal landfill, along with water line replacement efforts and a sludge removal system for the city's water treatment facility.

Each night during the week has been set aside for budget work sessions beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the city council chambers, located at 307 E. Fourth Street. Fuqua said he hopes to have the presentation completed Tuesday, but has set Thursday and Friday aside, if necessary. For more information call 264-2401.
