PARADISE, Calif. -- The Town of Paradise got a first glimpse of its proposed budget plan for the upcoming year on Tuesday night.
The town treasurer emphasized in the wake of the Camp Fire the budget is a work in progress as the needs of the town continue to change.
The general fund is expected to have a cash flow reserve of $1.5 million and a Measure C reserve of $1.1 million. The treasurer recommended the town be fiscally conservative until more is known about the PG&E settlement.
We spoke with Camp Fire survivors at the meeting Tuesday night.
"This is a living document and because it's a living document we understand things will change. It will change with different money coming in, different grants and things will change," said Mike Greer, a Camp Fire survivor.
"The two biggest things for the public are safety, and that's fire and police. We know we have to staff that for the services needed for the problems we have," said Ward Habriel, a Camp Fire survivor.
The budget was postponed to give more people the chance to review it. You can find more information about the budget here.
The Paradise town council will come back on August 13th to vote on the budget proposal.
