The commission voted on the 105 million dollar budget which Mayor Elaine Walker says was one of the better budgets she's seen.
Before the Commission approved the budget 4 to 1, Commissioner Delane Simpson pleaded with the Commission on behalf of citizens that emailed him to amend the budget to give money to the two local orchestras.
After some debate between Simpson, Mayor Walker and Commissioners Slim Nash and Brian Strow on the merits of funding the orchestras, the proposed amendment was defeated 3 to 2.
The commission also voted to combine the offices of City Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer and the reorganization of the offices of City Manager and City Clerk.
