Streetsboro -- City Council passed the 2014 permanent budget 6-0, which Mayor Glenn Broska called "conservative."

"It is as conservative as we can get," he said. "We're making sure we're positioning ourselves for the future."

City Council approved the budget March 24. Councilman Tim Claypoole was absent. The permanent budget had to be passed by March 31, according to law, Broska said. The city operated for the first three months of the calendar year on a temporary budget.

According to Finance Director Jenny Esarey, in the permanent budget, the total appropriations for all funds is about $22.049 million. The general fund appropriations budget is about $10.904 million. The capital fund appropriations budget is about $2.647 million.

The estimated general fund revenue is about $10.9 million, while the estimated revenue for all funds is about $20.49 million. The difference is made up with money left over from 2013.

"Finalizing the budget was a time consuming joint effort between Council and my administration," Broska said. "Together, we presented and approved a conservative and fiscally sound budgets.
