Hillsboro makes budget changes
Hillsboro will make minor amendments to its 2020 budget to avoid violations, but the changes have little financial impact.
Expenses traditionally paid from the general fund were shifted to the Special Highway fund in the spring, and the gas tax produced more revenue than expected.
A fire equipment replacement grant from the Federal Emergency Management Administration needed to be recorded.
Properties transferred to the Hillsboro Land Bank will not be subject to property tax. A public hearing for the amended budget is set for 4 p.m. Dec. 29 during a city council meeting.
