Aldermen call public hearing over mayor’s budget proposal
Published: August 20,2013
OLIVE BRANCH — Olive Branch’s mayor is proposing 3 percent average pay raises for city employees and a half-million dollars set aside to pave roads.
The Commercial Appeal reports the Board of Aldermen will hold a public hearing tonight on the budget proposed by Mayor Scott Phillips for the 2013-14 fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.
Phillips tapped various government sources to assemble the proposed document, but it will be aldermen who have the final say on how city money will be spent.
The public hearing will be at 6:30 p.m. in the municipal courthouse. Aldermen are not expected to vote on final figures until Sept. 3.
The proposed budget calls for $28.9 million in expenditures, a 6.47 percent increase over the 2012-13 city budget.
