The city of Clarksburg has a new budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Council approved the budget by a unanimous vote during a special meeting Wednesday afternoon in council chambers.
The nearly $17 million budget is balanced, and it includes money for infrastructure and raises for city employees.
"Our bills are paid. We annually give our employees somewhat of a pay raise. We would rather give them a little bit every year than nothing at all. And we're moving the city forward. We're one of just a hand full of cities in the state of West Virginia that have a rainy day fund. And what we have by having money in the bank, it allows us then to partner with other entities to partner with the state to do certain projects, for example Chestnut Street," said Mayor Patsy Trecost.
The raise for city employees is approximately 2%.
