City Councilors have made a set of final amendments to their next budget. The council will provide more than $75,000 to the Registrar’s Office, which is preparing for the November 8th presidential election. The councilors have also agreed to spend $80,000 to restore and maintain the Daughters of Zion Cemetery.

They will also restore some of the funding for a skateboard park near the John Warner Parkway. Many skateboard enthusiasts (pictured) voiced their passion for their sport at past City Council meetings.

There are funding requests that will not get restored, including the Municipal Band. The council will adopt a new budget and set new tax rates at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
