The City of Wood River has a new budget plan that has been officially submitted to the City Council. Department heads were told to keep budget requests to a minimum again this year. The budget comes in at around $17.9-million, which represents no significant change from last year.
City Manager Jim Schneider says going through the budgeting process hasn't been easy for a few years, but they are holding their own.
The budget hearing has been scheduled for Monday, March 19, before the next city council meeting at 7pm.
