Friday, June 1, 2012
The Jefferson City Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department is preparing next year’s budget, planning for $7.9 million in spending.
Director Bill Lockwood told a special Parks and Recreation Commission meeting the proposed budget includes a 2 percent across the board pay increase for all permanent employees, something that may or may not survive the City Council budget sessions.
The proposed budget also includes a projected 2 percent increase in local park sales tax collections and a $1.3 million contribution to the fund for a multipurpose building.
