Huntingdon Council Approves Amended Budget

Posted

Huntingdon’s City Council met in their monthly session with a short agenda to deal with. Mayor Dale Kelley made note of the recent announcement that Ford Motor Company was going to build in the Memphis Regional Megasite. “The announcement of Ford Motor Company’s investment in the Memphis Regional Megasite is good news for all of West Tennessee. This investment will transform the economy and benefit the area for current and future generations.” said Kelley.

In new business, there was no one at the meeting to comment on the zoning map amendment. So the board moved on to the second and final reading to rezone two properties located at 22000 East Main Street from B-2 (General Business) to M-2 (Heavy Industrial) in order to place a landscape business at that address.

Another ordinance was the first reading of an amendment to the city budget which increased the budget for Economic Development Activities from $61,500 to $541,500. That is an increase of $480,000, which will be transferred to the Carroll County Watershed Authority for the 1000-Acre Lake. It also increases the total estimated operating expenses to slightly over $5.5 million dollars and creates an estimated deficit of $475,680 in the city’s operating budget. With no discussion or questions, the board approved the ordinance on first reading and will vote on the second reading at next month’s board meeting.
