CENTRAL - The City Council unanimously approved a $5 million general fund budget for fiscal year 2011-12 Tuesday.
The budget anticipates $6.3 million in revenue with the largest portion, $4.1 million, coming from general sales and use tax.
The budget also calls for spending about $5 million, including $3.4 million in city operations and services, which includes the services contract.
During a time when other cities are facing budget shortfalls and cuts, Mayor Shelton “Mac” Watts said Central doesn’t have that problem.
“This budget projects a surplus of $1.2 million,” Watts told the council and audience.
No one commented on the budget.
In other business, the council unanimously approved a resolution naming The Advocate as the official journal of the city for the purpose of posting legal notices.
In addition, the council approved two zoning cases approved and forwarded to them by the zoning commission.
One case involves a planned unit development called Twin Lake Estates on the north side of Denham Road between the White Oak Run Drive and Hidden Creek Drive intersections. The development would have a maximum of two homes per acre.
The other zoning issue is the revocation of an alley for a commercial use in a traditional neighborhood development.
