HERMISTON, OR – The Hermiston
City Council adopted a supplemental budget Monday night which increases the FY
'13-'14 budget by $894,350, or 1.8%.
The city makes supplements to the
budget every year to accommodate for increases in expenses or revenue which
weren't anticipated before the original document was adopted.
Several large projects which are
included in the supplement are the result of grant revenue. The City of
Hermiston regularly does not budget for anticipated grant revenue until it is
actually awarded. Several supplements had to be made to cover the costs of the
Oxbow Trail project, which received $135,000 in State of Oregon grant revenue
and $20,000 in donations. The FAA also awarded a $270,000 grant to the city for
its fencing project at the airport.
