Senoia adopts 2012 budget

The Senoia City Council on Dec. 19 adopted the 2012 General Fund budget totaling $2.3 million. The budget represents an increase of nearly $200,000 over 2011 but is also nearly $60,000 less than the projected costs through the completion of the fiscal year that ends Dec. 31.

“In all, the General Fund is proposed to increase by 9.6 percent, with most of those costs in the police department and municipal court,” City Manager Richard Ferry during the budget’s first reading in early December. “Budgetary highlights include maintaining the current level of service in the other departments. There are very few significant cost increases.

The largest are the costs for an additional officer in the police department, the significant increase in the cost of gasoline in all departments. These costs should be able to be met without any significant increases to fees or the millage rate.”

The FY 2011 General Fund budget that runs through December totaled $2.128 million though the projected expenses through Dec. 31 are expected to total $2.385 million, Ferry said.

The proposed 2012 budget comes in at $2.326 million, a difference of $198,400 over the current budget adopted a year ago. Ferry said the majority of cost increases this year and extending into next year are in public safety and the municipal court and in increased fuel costs.
