MIDLAND - During Tuesday morning's Midland City Council meeting, Council members began hashing out their budget for next year.
The Council discussed how they're looking at having a little over $90 million to spread around and they were pleased to announce they're looking at a balanced budget for next year as well, all thanks to increases in city revenues.
One of the areas they're looking at putting a focus on is public safety.
The city is hoping to hire more firefighters and police officers, noting that the increase in population brings with it an increased need in protecting citizens.
Council members say they will continue to evaluate the budget.
