Despite a decrease in sales tax revenue, Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs says she is confident in the city's financial state.
Dabbs made that assessment during a meeting Tuesday of the City Council's Finance and Personnel Committee.
The mayor noted that revenue currently is down by 4 percent, so all of the city departments currently are operating at 6 percent or greater under budget.
"When you hear the naysayers out there complaining about how much money the city has spent, remember this: At least it is on things and projects that are meaningful to our neighbors and friends and families.
Benton City Council's Streets and Drainage Committee is set to meet today at 6 p.m. to discuss and possibly approve bids to improve Northshore Drive.
