Work is under way on the City of Pendergrass’s 2014 budget. City administrator Rob Russell advised the council at the monthly meeting on Aug. 27 that work is already under way on the “bare bones” budget. Russell said plans were to hold public hearings on the proposed budget, that will be essentially the same as the 2013 budget, on the same day as the September council meeting, which is Sept. 24. Russell said one hearing would be held during the morning and the other would be held at 6:15 p.m., prior to the 6:30 council meeting. The plan is for the council to vote on the 2014 budget at the Oct. 29 council meeting.
