NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Natchez officials say they’ve managed to equalize a nearly $800,000 deficit in the budget through adjusting revenues, budget cuts and a great deal of discussion.

The Natchez Board of Aldermen met Monday for a budget work session, during which Mayor Butch Brown went through individual revenues and expenses that were adjusted, and in some cases corrected, to balance the budget.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1yxIJ59 ) the city’s overall $37.7 million budget has a nearly $3 million surplus, but included a $857,199 deficit in the general fund.

Brown said he, department heads and City Clerk Donnie Holloway worked last week to eliminate that deficit.

Other adjustments to the budget included a suggestion to hold off on equipment purchasing for two city departments - public works and the police department.
