Mantachie officials have approved a relatively unsurprising budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. The $800,000 budget largely follows the same path as its predecessor, save a few notable changes.

* The 2014-2015 budget sees few changes from last year’s model. What can be said about the latest iteration of the Fulton’s budget that hasn’t been said about the last few that preceded it?

Before they could approve the town’s budget for the next fiscal year, Mantachie aldermen first had to solve the mystery surrounding a deficit of more than $30,000 in the current budget.
