Lexington’s Urban County Council voted to change parts of the Mayor’s proposed budget.
The Council added almost $700,000 to the Mayor’s proposal for social service programs.
It also included $1 million in bonding for the Development Rights program.
The addition would bring the total to $2 million for the program, which is designed to help protect farmland.
The Council voted to set aside $2 million from state road money for paving.
The money could be added to the Mayor’s proposed $3 million for paving.
In addition, more than $200,000 of state road money was earmarked for new bike striping and intersection safety and maintenance improvements.
The changes are all preliminary.
The Mayor and Council have until the end of the month to come to an agreement before the new fiscal year begins July 1st.
