Carthage Mayor Jim Nightingale said budget projections for the general fund next fiscal year are lower than he would like.
He said, “That's something that we will have to address and present to the council. I think there's some items we're going to have to reduce the expenditures.”
Nightingale likes to see between $250,000 and $300,000 in the general fund. The projections are closer to $260,000.
He said the overall budget will be $1.2 million.
