  • approved an ordinance to allow for collection of ad valorem taxes in the city.
  • heard from O’Mary, who updated council members on the city’s financial status through the first three months of the 2019 fiscal year.

“The numbers are very, very good, no matter how you slice them,” O’Mary said. “If the remaining two-thirds can be as good as the first third, we’re going to have a stellar year in the city,”

O’Mary said sale taxes were up 4.11 percent for the period,  compared to 2 percent for the same time the previous year.

The mayor credited city clerk Kathy Chambless with making all that possible.

Total revenue in the city for first three months of the fiscal year is up 6.02 percent over the previous year, he added.
