City Adopts Budget; Resident Has To Ask For Copy

The Bartlett City Council recently held a budget workshop and public hearing after which they set a slightly lower tax rate and passed a budget. The budget includes a 2 percent pay raise for city employees and City Administrator Chris Hill projects a $69,000 surplus. The tax rate was set at $0.5791 per $100 valuation, a slight decrease from the $0.58 approved last year. At the public hearing, a resident questioned if there was a statute that said citizens could not have a copy of the actual budget. Hill said the information was available by making a public information request.
