Riverdale City Manager Iris Jessie tried to answer the mayor's objections at Wednesday's meeting.She
said the proposed budget allows council members to make adjustments.She
also said, "There is no direct relationship between the amendment and the city's reserve account.
I just wanted to remind you all that the budget is adopted without any use of reserves to balance it."
Concerning the mayor's second veto, Jessie
said, "I wasn't really 100 percent sure what this issue related to."She
added, "We included a line item as an expense that $100,000 will go into the city's investment account."That money could not be used without the council's approval, she
