Lexington’s city council has overwhelmingly given final approval to a $345 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year. One item Thursday night did generate significant discussion prior to the vote.
Several council members offered high marks for the budget and the budget building process. Council member Kevin Stinnett says significant gains are seen in funding for paving, police and fire, storm water, and code enforcement. “Really worked with council before the budget came out to make sure we had in there what the citizens are calling us for,” said Stinnett.
