Toccoa Commission Meeting on Budget Today

Toccoa City Commissioners will spend today taking a close look at the Fiscal Year 2014-2015 budget with city staff.

The commission is holding a budget work session starting at 9 a.m. at Toccoa City Hall.

City Manager Billy Morse said the work session is expected to last for much of the day.

“We will have time to talk to each department head about their budget and work through the process to get everybody comfortable with our budget,” said Morse.

Morse went on to say that he and city staff have put together an initial proposed budget for the commission to look at during today’s work session.

“We feel like we have presented (the commission) with a very conservative and responsible budget,” said Morse.

Toccoa City Commissioners must approve a budget for the upcoming fiscal year on or before June 30.
