City leaders in Scott are feeling optimistic about their budget for next year.

The council held a special meeting tonight where they outlined how their money will be spent.

Mayor Purvis Morrison says they are able to fund all of their major projects while having a small surplus.

"It’s a trying time to go through a budget, especially in Louisiana at this time. But, we’re very fortunate. We’ve had surpluses in every one of our years that we did the budget. We were able to fund our raises that the council passed in January, and we’re still able to bring a good budget to the council."
