Thursday, the Cape Charles Town Council voted to amend and adjust the current budget.
In December, Council held a work session and reviewed the Town’s budget numbers through the end of November. There was more revenue than expected, as well as additional project expenditures that will occur during this fiscal year.
According to the Town, still reeling from all of the Covid-19 issues, the former budget was way too conservative relative to projected revenue and expenditures.
A public hearing was also held Thursday regarding the ordinance.
Expenditures during the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022:
General Fund – $3,724,394
General Capital Fund – $1,257,762
General Debt Service Fund – $258,614
General Special Activities Fund – $965,932
Sanitation Fund – $399,323
Harbor Fund – $1,092,312
Water/Wastewater Fund – $2,183,172
