Clarksville City Council Budget Recap for June 22nd, 2012 – Part 2 – Final

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – As I start this second report on the final Clarksville City Council meeting/result of the FY 2013 budget, you need to know that I sponsored an amendment to reduce it.  At first, I recommended a $2 million cut of the total spending request.  This would have lowered proposed expenditures to $79 million for FY 2013.

This would still represent a spending increase of $1.5 million over the initial projected budget of $77.5 million for FY 2012.
