Gonzales council passes new budgets unanimously
GONZALES- The Gonzales City Council has passed its 2015-16 general fund and capital outlay budgets unanimously in marked contrast to last year's six-month budget fight between two factions of the council.
The $10.6 million capital outlay budget approved Monday will be funding some $3 million in road projects, $1 million in water and gas projects, and close to $4 million in wastewater projects in the new fiscal year, which begins June 1.
The budget is up from last year's by $5.6 million, increased through the transfer of about $5 million from the city's general fund budget.
The city's 2015-16 general fund budget is $14.7 million for the new fiscal year, compared with the previous year's $14.2 million.
