Panama City, FL –
CALLAWAY, Fla. (WMBB) – The City of Callaway approved its final budget on Wednesday.
City officials have approved the $ 45 million budget that will go to their parks, drainage projects, road resurfacing and other city projects.
The annual budget is normally around $ 20 million, but this year they have a surplus of money from FEMA grants and projects.
The city also approved the 2.75 mileage rate, which is the same mileage rate they’ve had in recent years.
“We have maintained the same rate that we have had in recent years at 2.75,” said Callaway City manager Ed Cook. “We have maintained our water rates, our sewer rates. In fact, we have kept all the rates the same. We don’t want to keep trying to penalize our residents in any way and we will continue to move forward.
Cook said they will also make room in the budget to improve parks in the area.
“We are going to redo all the playground equipment at the Veterans Park, also here at the sports complex, and we plan to upgrade Brittany Woods to include a play set and maybe a dog park in that area,” Cook said.
Cook said they also plan to rebuild John B. Gore Park as soon as they complete the FEMA process.
