City Council to deal with finance issues as end of year nears

December 16, 2004

Year-end housecleaning tasks will be among the items of business for Lansing City Council when it meets tonight.

The council is being asked to amend the city's 2004 budget to reflect the differences in actual expenditures in several funds that were different from the budget the council adopted last year.

City Clerk Karen Logan noted the amendments would not cause any changes in the property tax levy.

In addition, the council will be asked to approve an agreement with the Topeka accounting firm of Wendling, Noe, Nelson and Johnson to conduct the city's 2004 year-end audit. The cost of the audit would be $16,215.
