SORRENTO - The Sorrento Town Council has approved a budget amendment that makes minor changes to the town's 2013-14 operating budget without providing raises two officials say are owed to town police officers.

Councilman Randy Anny and Police Chief Earl Theriot said some of the money being shifted around in the budget should go to the town's police officers, who voluntarily gave up raises over at least a two-year period to help keep the town afloat financially.

Town officials say the budget amendment will shift some funding in the budget to different town services, such as road maintenance repairs and engineering projects and will decrease the town attorney's fees by $6,000.
