New Fiscal Year Starts Without Budget In Selma - It’s back to square one for the Selma Town Council. The board failed to approve a new fiscal year budget by July 1. Last week, in a 3-to-2 vote, the council rejected a budget they had been working on for two months. Council members made several cuts, but were still faced with a 9.5 cents tax increase this year. A temporary budget is now in place to keep the city government going.
