CASPER, Wyo. — The town of Evansville held a special council meeting Monday to approve the second readings of amendments to its 2021 budget as well as the outline for its 2022–23 budget.

Ordinance #3-2022 approved an amendment to the fiscal year 2021–22 budget, for which more funds than planned were spent in the Town Clerk, Finance, Legal, Municipal Court and Parks Departments. The ordinance was read for the second time Monday.

According to notes in the ordinance, spending increases occurred for the following reasons:

  • “Town Clerk increase due to Payroll Expenses.”
  • “Finance Department increase due to Professional Services & Equipment Expenses.”
  • “Legal Department increase due to policy changes and other legal issues that arose throughout the year.”
  • “Municipal Court increase due to Software costs and jail fees.”
  • “Parks increase due to higher than anticipated payroll expenses.”

Ordinance #4-2022 planned spending for fiscal year 2022–23, which spans July 1 through June 30. Funds will be drawn from three main sources: the General Fund, Enterprise Fund and Capital Improvement Fund.
