Section 11-44C-51

Adoption of general fund budget and any necessary revenue measure; failure to adopt budget.

Not later than the twentieth day of September of the current fiscal year, the council by a majority vote shall adopt the general fund budget, and such ordinance providing for additional revenue as may be necessary to put the budget in balance, including a two percent reserve. If for any reason the council fails to adopt the general fund budget on or before such day, the general fund budget of the current fiscal year shall be the general fund budget for the ensuing year, until such time as a newly revised budget shall be adopted by the council and, until such time, it shall have full force and effect to the same extent as if the same had been adopted by the council.
