New proposed adjustments to the 2015 Evansville city budget

Evansville City Controller, Russ Lloyd, has sent to City Council a new list of adjustments to the 2015 budget.

The budget was originally submitted to council on August 18.

Mayor Winnecke's office agreed to cut $2.7 million but council wanted another $600,000 in cuts.

So he went back to city departments to see if any more cuts could be made.

The revised budget reflects $2.8 million in cuts but council president, John Friend, says that's still not enough.


Friend says he's done a study of the past 32 months that shows the city's payments have been on average more than $400,000 than is being brought in each month.

Council is scheduled to vote on the budget October 27.  Must be approved by November 3.
