City adopts $1.16M budget

POSTED: July 1, 2009 4:00 a.m.

The Dawsonville City Council adopted its 2009/2010 budget at a special called meeting Monday.

  

The $1.16 million budget does not include a tax increase, despite a decrease in revenue due to the current economic climate.

  

The city’s 2009/2010 budget is down slightly, by about $73,000, from 2008/2009.

City Administrator Kim Cornelison first presented the new budget, which does not include any new staff or previously anticipated special purpose local option sales tax revenue from Dawson County, during a regular meeting on June 1.

  

Cornelison said the city has cut staff by about 25 percent to make up for lost dollars.

  

The city is also adjusting spending to see “what other expenses we can terminate,” she said.

  

A second hearing was held on June 17.

  

No one spoke in favor or opposition of the proposed budget at either of the public hearings.
