GONZALES, La. (AP) — Ascension Parish Council members will vote next month on a proposed $124 million budget for 2013.

The estimated total is slightly lower than the original $125.8 million figure adopted last year for the 2012 fiscal year budget.

The Advocate reports the proposal includes total operating budget revenues of about $74.2 million, with estimated expenditures at $66.8 million.

Projected capital budget figures — which include funds for projects primarily paid for with grants and one-time bond proceeds — show revenue at $49.7 million, with expenditures of $57.1 million.

The parish plans to use part of its capital budget fund balance to make up the difference between its expected revenues and its expected expenditures.

Council member will vote on the 2013 budget at their Nov. 15.
