MT. VERNON — The city of Mt. Vernon is working on its budget for the 2020 fiscal year. The proposed budget anticipates roughly $100,000 less in revenue for the coming fiscal year.
City manager Mary Ellen Bechtel says the city had a good year revenue-wise, and the city is not anticipating as good of a year the coming year.
In a previous version of the story, we incorrectly reported the city is anticipating a revenue increase because of using a wrong figure in our calculations.
The council is anticipated to take action on the proposed budget on Monday at their next scheduled meeting. To view the full draft of the 2019-2020 Mt. Vernon City budget, you can view it below:
