SOUTH WEBER -- The South Weber City Council recently approved the new general budget for the 2013 fiscal year.
The new budget of $1,678,930 was reduced from last year's budget of $1,907,195.
Public safety received 28 percent of the new budget, while parks received only 7 percent, roads 21 percent, building inspection 6 percent, transfers 7 percent, legislative 3 percent, and general government 28 percent.
City Manager Rodger Worthen said he was very pleased with the new budget, which required many hours of deliberation.
With an increase in tax revenue, licensing and permits, the financial decisions were made easier, he said.
Councilmen David Thomas, Farrell Poll, Randy Hilton and Michael Poff were in favor of the resolution; Sara Lusk was absent.
The salary administration guidelines were also approved by David Thomas, Farrell Poll and Randy Hilton.
However, Michael Poff voted against the guildelines because he felt some of the city's employees deserve a raise in salary.
