Fredericksburg City Council members on Monday approved $784,200 for five of six proposed mid-year budget amendments.
The council left out an amendment for $423,877 as a deficit from 2014-2015 for the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Golf Course.
Mayor Linda Langerhans, who won re-election last week, wanted to wait until later in the year to make a decision about taking the money from the general fund.
“I would prefer to, the transfer of the golf deficit, to hold off on that until we get into our budget meetings this summer,” Langerhans said. “I just don’t think that should be approved right now.”
The other five budget amendments that were approved by council include:
• Purchase of property at 301 Friendship Lane — $524,200;
• Marktplatz square expense (drainage improvements) — $100,000 from the tourism fund;
• Computer software maintenance — $65,000 out of the general fund;
