MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A second letter from the state comptroller's office to the city of Memphis has stressed the city budget at hand is crucial to the city's fiscal future.
But The Commercial Appeal also reported Mayor A C Wharton, state Comptroller Justin Wilson and members of the City Council expect long-term fiscal challenges to be addressed now as the budget is finalized.
Wilson told the newspaper his office has had full cooperation from the city administration and what he called "good, fair, hard questions" from the council. He said he believes council members will make good choices themselves to balance the budget.
In a letter to local officials, Wilson had stated the current budget may be the last clear chance for Memphis to determine its own future.
