The East Ridge City Council will hold a budget workshop on Friday, May 31 at City Hall on Tombras Avenue, according to a notice on the front door of City Hall.
The workshop is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., and the public is invited.
Last Thursday, City Manager Chris Dorsey reviewed the proposed $13.88 million General Fund budget. According to a budget summary document that Dorsey submitted to the council, the proposed 2019-20 fiscal year budget represents a 12.5 percent drop from last year’s spending.
In order to balance the proposed budget city officials had to reach into the city’s fund balance for an additional $646,000. The proposed budget does not include any money for an animal services building/dog park, or any funding for a fieldhouse at Raymond James Stadium on property obtained by the City of East Ridge in 2017.
