The Dalles City Council approved the municipal budget for Fiscal Year 2022-23 with a few modifications. Most notable was to provide an additional $40,000 for the Fort Dalles Fourth fireworks display, bringing the total to $50,000. New City Manager Matthew Klebes says that will provide another $15,000 for this year’s display, and $25,000 for 2023, to allow the Fort Dalles Fourth committee to better plan their expenditures. The Council approved the budget unanimously. There was some discussion about assigning a large percentage of Transient Room Tax revenues to The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce tourism promotion plan, and whether more TRT funds should be left to the discretion of the City Manager for other tourism-related uses, but Councilors decided that discussion would be more appropriate in preparation for future budgets.
