CALEXICO — The City Council here will have a budget workshop starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Woman's Improvement Club, 320 Heber Ave.
The council, City Manager Richard Inman and heads of the city's 10 departments will crunch numbers for the upcoming fiscal year's budget and discuss how general fund dollars will be divvied.
In preparation for the workshop, each department head has compiled a preliminary budget, which will be used at the workshop to guide the council and city employees in their discussions.
A few of the proposals in this year's preliminary budget include:
· $250,000 for the paving of De Anza Road near the wastewater treatment plant. According to the description by the city Public Works Department, "improvement needed on this road due to constant traffic and lost discharge operations during storms. Complaints received for road conditions. Only access for hangar renters. During last storm, operators had to assist stuck trucks. This cost the city money as operators had to take time from their responsibilities on the plant to help."
