Council approved a budget amendment at the Tuesday, June 14 council meeting to add funds to various departments because of fuel costs.
The general fund expenditures will increase by $100,000, the 4B Sales Tax Fund expenditures will increase by $3,300, and the Utility Fund expenditure will increase by $17,000.
Council also approved a professional services project order for the Wylie Historic Area Drainage Master Plan to Huitt-Zollars, Inc for $197,000.
City Engineer Tim Porter said the contract is to develop a comprehensive plan to assist with the “storm drainage forecast.”
Porter said the engineers at Huitt-Zollars have “unique abilities” to create the plan, including simulated rainfall models and data collection of the city’s existing drainage systems.
In the end, Porter said city staff will have a draft, a report and recommendations from the engineer.
