Town Manager Bruce St. Denis presented a list of budget reductions at a Wednesday, July 13, budget workshop that pleased Longboat Key Town Commission.

St. Denis presented a list of $265,222 worth of budget reductions that would create a $222 budget surplus for the Fiscal Year 2011-12 budget, which begins Oct. 1.

St. Denis reduced the attorney budget, made modifications to training budget line items and made modifications to employee health insurance contributions to make the reductions.

Commissioner Jack Duncan called St. Denis’ latest suggestions “fantastic.”
