      Tifton City Council at a budget standstill

      Time is up for the Tifton City Council who was required to approve their Fiscal Year 2014 budget Friday evening, however it wasn't an easy task.

      The council was still divided on the proposal to increase the town's taxes by 3-mill with some for it, others completely against it and others in favor of a 1 or 2-mill increase.

      Mayor Jamie Cater even proposed the city take on a low-interest bond to pay for the deficit, but members weren't in favor of the idea.

      The group was at a standstill for hours after members individually recommended amendments to the budget but didn't get a second to move forward by another council.
