SIKESTON - The Sikeston City Council approved a tentative 1998 fiscal year budget, which was presented by City Manager Dan Ward during a special meeting Monday night. After tabulating anticipated revenues (which Ward said he is confident will be received) and expenditures, the tentative fund balance at the end of fiscal year 1988 was shown at $77,406. Although the city's budget does not show a deficit as projected last week, Ward and the council considered it necessary to make more budget cuts in order to decrease expenditures and increase the year-end balance.
