Director of Management and Budget Chad Janicek gave a budget update at the halfway point of the 2013 budget year. He said the city’s general fund has received 57 percent of revenue and spent 49 percent of expenditures.
Property taxes continue to come in strong with an unexpected increase in fine revenue as well.
Janicek said February sales tax numbers were up nine percent from 2012. Sales tax revenue is up 2.6 percent for the budget year with hotel occupancy tax numbers increasing four percent from a year ago.
