The budget for the 2022-23 fiscal year was approved by the Stanton City Council on Tuesday night.
The vote was 4-0 with Councilmember Rigoberto Ramirez absent (excused). The proposed plan calls for increasing the cost-of-living adjustment to the city’s salary schedule from 7 percent to 8 percent.
Eliminated are one-time expenditures for the Bell Street parking lot project, an economic development study related to properties at 10692 and 10712 Beach Blvd. (the former Bauman’s Market) and a citywide classification and compensation study.
Revenues are projected to exceed expected expenses by $687,235.
The next city council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 28.
