Pittsburg city leaders sign off on 2019 budget


Pittsburg city leaders sign off on the 2019 city budget and many say it’s showing growth in the community.

Tonight, city commissioners held a public hearing on the proposed 2019 budget. The fifty four million dollar allowance is a two million increase from last year’s budget.   

There is also a three percent raise for city employees, without having a property tax increase. Pittsburg’s city manager says this budget shows a change in the city.

“My budget message this year is about growth. Our revenues are growing our expenditures are relatively flat. Our reserves are growing. Our population is growing. Our infrastructure is growing. It’s just a time of growth for Pittsburg. It’s pretty challenging, but it’s fun,” says Daron Hall, Pittsburg City Manager.

The certified budget city budget will go to the county clerk on August 25th.
