The Opelousas City Council voted 5-1 Tuesday night at its regular meeting to adopt the city’s 2018-19 budget.
“The budget is set and exceeds the amount approved for last year’s budget,” Mayor Reggie Tatum says.
The city council has had trouble in the past passing budgets.
The 2017-2018 budget didn’t pass until October.
Before that, the 2016-2017 budget didn’t pass until February, 2017.
The 2018-19 fiscal year started September 1 and ends on August 31, 2019.
