THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Thibodaux City Council has approved a roughly $32.6 million budget for 2016.

The only change council members made at Tuesday’s hearing was adding $100,000 for sidewalk repairs, which will come from a designated account for streets and roads.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/1XGMM6g) the operating budget estimated for next year is $24.6 million, a roughly 5 percent decrease from the $25.8 million approved by the council last year.

In terms of revenue, the city won’t see the $1.17 million boost it received in 2015 relating to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. But sales tax revenues, which make up about 39 percent of total money brought into the city, are expected to stay roughly the same as 2015.
