Kearney City Council approves budget for 2018
Kearney finally approved its 2018 budget at Tuesday’s meeting.
According to assistant city manager Paul Briseno, the board unanimously approved the $90.2 million budget with no questions or concerns from the public.
After months of discussion and multiple meetings regarding the budget, the Kearney City Council was able to approve the 2018 budget.
The budget approved is up from the $89.3 million that was approved for this year but Briseno said it is attributed to refinancing debt and differences in capital improvements that include a sports complex and the new veterans home.
