TOPPENISH The City Council adopted a budget of $24,204,616 for 2018 at its meeting last night.
The budget for 2017 was $27,369,338. Fewer capital projects are one of the reasons for the more than $3 million drop, according to Finance Director Debbie Zable.
Zable added that the budget no longer has to support a municipal court or a corrections center. All of that has been contracted to Sunnyside, she said.
