By Joe Reavis
Budget season kicked off last week when Wylie City Council members got an early look at projected revenue and expenditures for the fiscal year 2017-‘18 general fund.
The overview was presented by City Manager Mindy Manson in a budget workshop Tuesday, June 13.
“This is the beginning of many meetings about the budget,” Mayor Eric Hogue said when opening the workshop.
Budget sessions scheduled over the summer are department presentations to the council on July 11, 13 and 18, second budget workshop July 18, proposed budget available to the public Aug. 4, tax rate discussion Aug. 8, public hearing on budget and tax rate Aug. 22, second tax rate public hearing if needed Sept. 5 and adoption of budget and tax rate Sept. 12.
Manson reported that general fund revenue is estimated at $40.9 million and expenditures are $37.7 million before any budget requests are made, resulting in an excess of $3.18 million in revenue.
