In absence of the City Attorney Marshall Loy, Council member Craig Dean read the budget summary provided to council members.
Highlights of the budget changes are as follows:
- General Fund: total resources available for appropriation will change from $ 3,269,255 to $3,428,492. Estimated fund balances end of fiscal year will change from $1,239,778 to $1,336,304.

City Clerk Rhonda Loy said the council could expect two special called meetings during the month of June to work through details in each area.
Mayor Curtis Hardwick asked each council member to bring a list of roads that need work.
*Citizen Mary Anne Loy asked to be heard on the Municipal Aid Fund. She said sidewalks have historically been in this budget area with no line item of its own and she requested it have a definite amount in the face of her research and suggestions on badly needed work in the city. She said that money does not have to be spent on roads and could all go for sidewalks. Municipal Aid money is for streets and sidewalks. Council members Dean and Waggener agreed that sidewalks need their own designation and asked that it be done.
Mayor Hardwick said he could not see all Municipal Aid monies going into sidewalks but as budget details come into clear focus a sidewalk line can be added with council members deciding the amount to put into it.
