MADISON (WKOW) -- An unexpected boost in state funding has given the Madison Common Council some wiggle room in its 2013 budget.
Monday, Mayor Paul Soglin announced that there will be about $500,000 available to address changes to the budget and about an extra $300,000 to pay for Soglin's revisions.
Those revision include adding an extra police position and maintenance on the new law enforcement facility.
"The combination of what we deliberately left for the council and what we get in these revised state aid figures takes us up to as I said about $767,000," said Soglin.
The council will meet next week to discuss the budget and is expected to vote in November.
