After a short discussion and a minor change, the Clifton City Council approved the 2012 budget of $129,571. The change was to move $215 from the dog fund into the general fund. A separate account of $56,175 remains in the government investment pool, with $32,200 in the water fund and $23,975 in the Capitol Projects fund. The water bond payment reserve is at $35,000. This insures the city meets the requirement of having one payment in advance at all times for the repayment of a water loan.
Water is a big issue in Clifton, and as of right now, the water supply is adequate. Problems could arise in the future, and Mayor John Gailey suggested the city monitor water usage at both a spring and a well. Resident and city employee Neil Fuller stated he is concerned about water and future growth.
