Butler City Council will vote to introduce a new version of the 2018 budget at their meeting Thursday that includes revised expected revenue figures.
Councilman Kenny Bonus is in favor of paying employees what they deserve but he recognizes the value of conservative revenue estimates.
Butler City Council is not expected to take action on raising parking rates in the near future but they must vote on the first reading of this revised budget during their meeting Thursday night.
The city currently has about $54,000 in an account above what was needed for electricity in 2017 and that money can be used to pay for other lighting expenses, like street light replacement.
City Council previously passed a version of the 2018 budget that included a 1 mill decrease in the street lighting tax but could choose to return that tax to the 2017 level on Thursday.
