A significant contribution to that margin is the $480,000 in budgeted road repair funds that will not be spent until the the year beginning July 1.
The city does major road repair and overlay on a biennial basis, saving sales tax receipts one year to be used the following.
The budget for that account this year is $500,000, and less than $20,000 has been sent.
Factoring that out of the margin drops it to about $170,000.
Through April 30, the city revenue accounts had received about $12.4 million, including transfers from the Sales Tax and Utility Funds to the General Fund.
Spending in the same 10 months was about $11.7.
The City Council will consider amendments to the current budget at its meeting on June 8.
