Hartselle considers $10.4M budget

Hartselle is considering a $10.4 million budget for fiscal year 2012-2013, up from $9.92 million for the year ending Sept. 30, 2012.

The largest percentages of the budget are in the police department (25 percent), public works (13 percent), fire department (12 percent) and park and recreation (10.6 percent).

Expenditures for the Hartselle Aquatic Center is expected to be 5.3 percent of the overall budget. The city is expected to take in nearly $368,500 in revenue next year.

The actual revenue taken in for this year was $357,017.08.

Mayor Dwight Tankersley said these numbers are based off of expenditures for FY 2012. However, he said some of the revenues have not yet been counted.

“We still have a little bit of that revenue out right now,” Tankersley said. “I believe just about everyone has been pleased with the pool this summer.”

Tankersley said he is expecting the beginning bank balance to be near what it will be at the end of this year.

The ending balance as of July 31 was $4.205 million. The beginning balance on Oct. 1, 2011 was $3.73 million.

Tankersley said the current ending balance will go down to near the same level as Oct. 1 by the end of the fiscal year.

The council is also considering issuing level funding to all of the agencies that requested funding, along with adding a $10,000 annual donation to the Hartselle Fine Arts Center and $5,000 to the Osborne-Warren-Oden Recreation Center.
