COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Columbus city council members will meet to approve and adopt the proposed budget for the next fiscal year.

The mayor called a special meeting to approve and adopt the budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

The meeting will take place at City Hall on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Ward 3 Councilman Charlie Box said council members held two work sessions to discuss the budget.

He said the biggest difference is the city will not operate in a deficit this year.

The proposed budget has a millage tax rate increase and funds for the police, fire and public works departments to buy equipment.
