The Winter Park City Commission is on the verge of approving the budget for the 2017/2018 fiscal year, set for the agenda of today's meeting

On Sept. 15 during a rescheduled meeting, City Commissioners approved the budget on first reading, which included several changes since City Manager Randy Knight first presented the tentative budget earlier this year.

One of those amendments was the removal of police body camera funding, which as a result adds about $22,000 back to the city’s general fund and over $100,000 to the forfeiture fund.

Other changes included adding $150,000 toward traffic signalization improvements along Aloma Avenue and reducing the employee merit pay percentage by one-half of a percent, which saves the city about $60,000 across all funds.

Commissioners also plan to approve the millage rate for the upcoming fiscal year.
