There's good news in the air for residents of Bowling Green.
The city has just more than 95 million dollars to work with, and officials are focusing on the necessities.
It's time again for the city of Bowling Green to look at its budget for the next year, and city officials aren't bringing bleak news about it.
"There will be no tax increase recommended, nor do we expect any personnel cuts," said BG City Manager Kevin DeFebbo.
Officials say the city is in the positive shape it is now, because of preparations made years ago.
"There was much effort made a number of years ago, when the recession first started to right size this organization to make the hard choices back then," said DeFebbo.
"Another budget of maintenance trying to keep what we have together in good shape. The city of Bowling Green has been pretty good about monitoring its funds. We don't find ourselves in the shape that many cities are in. We're able to meet our budget," said BG Mayor Bruce Wilkerson.
DeFebbo says the city has several priorities in the budget that include sidewalks, parks and recreation and more.
"We've made a deep commitment to public safety historically, and in this budget to make sure people feel safe here," said DeFebbo.
And to keep that motto going, the city is updating the police and fire departments communication and dispatch system.
Along with that the city plans to spend about 800 thousand on roads, 500 thousand on storm water systems, and 400 thousand on sidewalk repairs.
The city will even have enough money for it's yearly big project.
"This one we're not issuing any bonds, and not raising any taxes. Still, it looks like we're going to be able to do that major fix at Cave Mill and Smallhouse, if all the dominoes get in a row there," said Wilkerson.
For fiscal year 2013, there will be no real cuts.
Some of the other things the city is looking at building includes a shelter and a restroom at the dog park.
