Within this year’s budget, the city of Farmersville allocated a total of $10,000 for Christmas light decor, which will be matched by $10,000 from the Farmersville Community Development Corporation (4B) and $1,500 from the Farmersville Chamber of Commerce. (File photo.)

The city’s final budget was approved Tuesday, Sept. 12 with a slight revision made to include $4,000 in additional funds for Christmas lights.

Prior to the approval of the budget, Councilmember Craig Overstreet made an amendment to include an additional $6,000 in the upcoming budget for Christmas lights which will be placed downtown and on the buildings. This was later reduced to the additional $4,000 that was needed on top of the $6,000 that was already included in the budget.

In budget talks, eight items were reduced in the budget including the Christmas light funds to lower the amount of a deficit budget the council would have to approve for the FY 2017-’18.

After discussions about Christmas lights for downtown Farmersville, the council amended its budget by for the lights. Within the budget, there is a total $10,000 allotted for the Christmas lights. Farmersville Community Development Corporation (4B) will match the city’s funds.

Farmersville Chamber of Commerce will also contribute $1,500 to the project.
