The Aberdeen City Council will hold an emergency meeting Wednesday morning to consider a budget amendment, according to City Clerk Monica Correll.
The amendment proposes to transfer $73,000 for the medical insurance line item of the budget to the municipal building operation line item to cover a shortfall due to unexpected expenses, said city Finance Director Opiribo Jack.
The net effect of the transfer, should the amendment be approved by the council, would be zero, Jack said.
"They will be moving funds from one line item to
another line item," he said, adding that this transfer would not increase the overall city budget.
Wednesday's meeting will take place a 10 a.m. in council chambers.
