The Winfield City Council voted to adopt a new budget during its meeting on Sept. 7.
According to Winfield Mayor Randy Price, this budget marks the first time in a long time that the city will have a significant surplus in the budget.
Price said that in the past, the city has often found itself scrambling to move funds around to make sure all of the bills get paid.
It’s a relief to see that the new budget will allow the city to operate in the green instead of struggling in the red. This new budget will be of great benefit to the city going forward, and will give the city a much-needed safety cushion in the event of an emergency or other unforseen circumstances.
