The Washington City Council met last night and held discussion about the city budget for the next fiscal year. Changes were made to the city employee’s health insurance policy. The changes in coverage options for employees will result in approximately $20,000 in savings.
They heard from various departments about their budgets as well.
City Administrator Brent Hinson says the City Council will be meeting again on the 21st to work more on the budget and he has a goal of finalizing the budget at that meeting.
