The budget adds up to a total of $107 million. That's a 5.8-percent increase over last year.
The school board will get its $39 million, but it's not getting any additional local dollars. City Manager Roger Baker is suggesting it use its undesignated fund balance to make up the difference.
Baker is also proposing a meals tax and a cigarette tax.
A public hearing on the budget will take place at the April 22 council meeting.
