CLOVERDALE -- It was one of the quickest meetings in months for the Cloverdale Town Council as it held a public hearing Monday evening to pass the 2013 budget.
In a previous meeting last week, the budget was tabled as the council waited for more information regarding two funds, the Riverboat Fund and the Rainy Day Fund.
Previous advertisements for the budget included substantial amounts in both funds, however when the council went to pass the budget, those amounts had been cut.
"There was no money that was cut," council vice president Dennis Padgett said. "The money for those funds comes in through tax money, and that money has not come in yet."
With the entire council present, the 2013 budget was authorized to be sent on to the Department of Local Government and Funding in a mere five-minute meeting.
The next town council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13.
