The City of Jeanerette has a budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

The council unanimously approved that budget at a council meeting Monday night

During the meeting, fiscal administrator David Greer said the city has made progress but there is still work to be done.

“Water rates we are probably looking at some adjustment there and sewer rates as well. I am just mentioning that to give you a heads up that that’s what we’ve got to do to fund the operations of the city.  We are not breaking even much less covering our cost,” Greer said.

Also during the meeting, the council discussed new insurance policies that expire this weekend and a new grant that will help fund repairs to the sewer plant.
