The council discussed an update for the city's municipal development district and individual budgets for administration, finance, community outreach, municipal court, community development, trash/recycling and non-major funds.
The early changes were presented by Shenandoah Finance Director Lisa Wasner. Of the significant changes for the finance department presented during the meeting were banking fees increasing for the city due to low interest rates from the coronavirus throughout the past year.
Wasner said the charges are estimated at around $29,000, and the city is looking to change banks for fewer fees.
Wasner also said there is an anticipated increase for the community development department because the department added two employees.
No actions were made on the early budget talks, as the items were discussion only. The council is aiming to begin budget workshops for the fiscal year 2021-22 on Aug. 12.
