The Star City approves operating budget

STAR CITY — The Star City City Council on Monday unanimously approved an operating budget for 2013 that includes $2,2270,677 in anticipated revenue for all city departments and $2,161,730 in total expenses. The income projection is about $100,000 less than last year's figure because Mayor Gene Yarbrough said he wanted to be conservative in the projections in case revenues are down, but he doesn't expect that to be the case.
