JELLICO— Budgets for three departments are tentatively set after last Wednesday’s special called meeting of the Jellico Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
The highways and streets department will function on $213,522 for fiscal year 2013-14. The number is based on the amount of revenue generated as of now, which is also $213,522.
“You don’t want to spend more than you’re going to bring in, and that’s been a problem,” said part time certified municipal finance officer, Sondra Denton.
The town’s library is set to run on $93,353.
The sanitation department will operate on $132,275.
The board approved the numbers. Denton will look at each department and divide the money for the necessary expenditures.
