Two portions of the Holts Summit annual operating budget raised concern during the Board of Aldermans’ work session meeting on Oct. 28.
The Holts Summit annual operating budget is divided into five main parts: general fund, transportation, sewer, animal control and emergency management. Animal control and emergency management were highlighted as problem areas.
“Both animal control and emergency management are putting a lot of strain on our budget,” City Administrator Brian Crane said.
Put simply, neither division is generating enough money to offset the cost of operation. For animal control, the projected revenue for 2013 was $86,000. So far this year, animal control has generated about $37,000 in revenue.
“We’re hoping to get $5,000 a month until the end of the period,” Crane said.
