Huntington City Council has passed unanimously the fiscal 2020 budget estimate which is the largest in history and includes increases for both the police and fire departments. 

Prior to the approval, Mayor Steve Williams announced that the state auditor's office completed its audit of last year's spending and for the second year, the auditor had no findings and recommendations. 

Williams complemented department heads, the finance department and council members.

Public Works director Jim Insco announced that Spring paving started March 25. 

The Mayor told council that through March 22, the City of Huntington has demolished 32 dilapidated structures this year.
