POINT BLANK — The Point Blank City Council approved its 2023-24 budget at its regular meeting on Sept. 11.
Mayor Mark Wood said the city has a balanced budget, with revenues and expenditures at $680,000, which includes grant revenues, and the cost of an election, which is scheduled for 2024.
The funds for roadwork dropped about $15,000, he said.
In a separate matter, Council member Gary Wulf, who was censured in June regarding a matter with the Point Blank VFD, sought to have the censure removed, stating the censure was detrimental for his participation in the area’s EMT program.
Wood said Wulf made a motion, which died for lack of second.
In other business, the council:
•rehired auditors Riggs and Ingram for the annual audit;
•opened an Amazon Business Account, which will allow the city buy supplies directly and tax-free; and
•approved issuing a city credit card that only requires one signature.
