City leaders in Webb City will decide nearly $16 million in spending for next year’s budget.
The 2020 proposal includes a number of additions, including a complete surfacing replacement on Daughtery Street and $400,000 in other road repairs.
New lighting would be installed at a city soccer field. Employees would see a pay raise plus a retirement contribution from the city. The budget also calls for a new truck for the fire department.
“The major purchase is going to be a 3/4 of a million dollars,” explained city administrator Carl Francis. “A ladder truck for the fire department – that’s going to be a large portion of our capital.”
The city council is expected to vote to finalize the 2020 budget at Monday’s meeting at 5:30 at City Hall.
