Parks to receive more city funds

August 15, 2013

Starkville Parks Commission coffers will weigh a little more after Oct. 1 if a line item the Board of Aldermen supports earns approval on the final 2013-14 city budget. Commission Chairman Dan Moreland said, though, the new money should make that weight just right.

The board discussed Tuesday appropriating an additional $96,000 for Parks operations next fiscal year, raising the total the city would contribute for those purposes to just more than $940,000. Parks also receives $180,000 annually from 2-percent food and beverage tax revenue, but that money is restricted for capital park improvements.
