GONZALES, La. (AP) - Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux once again has introduced budgets for the city’s new fiscal year after his May veto of major parts of an amended budget.

Arceneaux said then he primarily objected to an $800,000 study of an Interstate 10 service road, proposed last month as an amendment by Councilman Gary Lacombe.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1nZWWzr) the mayor did not include funding for that road study in the budget he proposed on Monday.

The new proposed capital outlay fund budget stands at approximately $5.6 million.

No amendments to either the general fund or the capital outlay budgets were offered at Monday’s meeting.

The vote on the budgets comes up at the city council’s next meeting on July 14.
