The Dallas City Council approved the city's budget for fiscal year 2013 at a called meeting Monday night.
The $4.95 million budget is down approximately $1.84 million from fiscal year 2012's budget of $6.79 million budget. A public hearing was held on the budget last week though, according to the Paulding Neighbor, no residents spoke on the issue.
Although the city's fiscal year runs from July 1-June 30, City Manager Kendall Smith said the council had to postpone its vote until the city received final ad valorum tax digest figures from Paulding County.
The approved budget includes expenditures of $1.88 million for the police department; $835,050 for the administrative department; $749,453 for the streets department; and $598,865 for the Dallas Theater.
