The City of Wheeling hit the mark with its city budget during the past fiscal year.
Wheeling City Manager Bob Herron told the Wheeling City Council Finance Committee the city broke even on operating expenses for the year, and had a bit over $700,000 available for capital improvement projects.
City leaders believe Wheeling's business tempo has picked up in the past couple years.
"Well, the tax revenue numbers suggested that Wheeling is actually fiscally very sound," said Mayor Eugene Fahey. "And the business climate of Wheeling is really strong. And we're seeing that over the last couple years, where our revenues, our tax revenues are increasing, and through a multitude of ways, so that what we're able to do is provide better services as a city."
City Manager Bob Herron also proposed a two percent raise for city employees in the coming year.
