Deadwood City Budget Up $12M

A move to a lower interest rate on bonds was the major factor in the city of Deadwood supplementing its 2015 budget by $12 million, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. That raises the 2015 budget to $32.2 million, up from $20.5 million. 

The city's move added $9 million to the annual budget but saved them nearly $1 million in debt service costs, according to city officials. Other expenses ranging from the city's historic preservation fund to the new Deadwood Welcome Center combined to make up the additional $3 million in what's called budget supplements

City officials said that it's typical to need to amend the annual budget during the budget year as unexpected expenses arise.
