City’s first budget workshop tonight in Sterling

STERLING – The City Council will meet tonight because of the city’s observance of the Presidents’ Day holiday on Monday.

After its regular 6:30 p.m. meeting, the council will remain in council chambers for a budget study session.

City Administrator Scott Shumard will present preliminary budget numbers to the council.

This is the point in which the budget process begins in earnest at the council level, Mayor Skip Lee said.

“These are very preliminary numbers, but it’s the first time this year we’ll get a look at the numbers for this budget,” Lee said. “We’ll start going through the major funds and get the discussion started.”

The budget session is open to the public. When the budget is completed, it is made available for general viewing, and a public hearing is held before it can be approved by the council.
