City Clerk Aimee Abernathy said the city may request services it has never previously received from the county, including assistance with code enforcement and help from the county solicitor general’s office in prosecuting cases.
“The county already provides a great deal of services because Waleska is extremely small,” Abernathy said Friday. “(The council) is trying to work out what’s affordable and what isn’t.”
Also at the work session, Mayor Doris Jones and Councilwoman Edna Cook will share information from the Georgia Municipal Association Annual Convention they both attended last week in Savannah.
During the regularly scheduled meeting, the council will:
* Discuss making a $350 donation to the Volunteer Aging Council for its annual gala;
* and receive an update from Abernathy regarding the city of Canton’s offer to provide the city of Waleska with free mulch. Abernathy said Canton officials do not have anywhere to store extra mulch they produce and the delivery will be free.
At its June 28 meeting, the council also unanimously approved its proposed budget for the 2012-13 fiscal year as well as the amended 2011-12 budget. The city’s fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30, 2013.
Proposed total revenues for the next year are $708,917 and projects spending all of those funds.
This year’s amended revenues of $723,284 are down from an approved $730,484.
The city put $5,300 into savings within the last fiscal year. The council also approved a Georgia Environmental Finance Authority loan for $121,434.
