Committee has projected should
the City maintain its course,
it would exceed the minimum
fund balance by 21.25 percent
or $158,131 by the end of the
current fiscal year.
Therefore, the Committee
has chosen to be proactive and
worked to change the current
budget (FY2013). They have
sharpened their pencils and
are recommending a $194,128
reduction in expenses and a
$35,997 reduction in listed rev-
enues to balance the FY2013
Each of the five department
heads, which oversee the nine
separate departments expensed
out of the General Fund, have
been notified and are reworking
their budgets. This will mean
reductions in various ways
throughout the City, but these
adjustments, according to the
Committee, will not result in
any decrease in pay or loss
in benefits for City staff or a
noticeable reduction in City
services for patrons
The Committee has dis-
cussed reduction of the mayor/
council pay, eliminating flex
benefits, eliminating the City
Treasurer position, reducing
ing and new revenue gener-
ating activities in the police
department. The Committee is
now actively pursuing ways to
increase fees, generate revenue
and reduce expenses as it puts
together the 2014 budget.
These reductions aren’t
affecting any of the other major
funds such as Road Use, Water,
Sewer, Streets, Local Option,
Debt Services or Sanitation.

function, but tuna fishing, salt-
ing and preserving, and the pro-
duction of garum (a fish paste/
sauce) were its primary sources
of wealth. Tuna passed through
the Straits to spawn in the east-
ern Mediterranean and returned
months later to swim back to the
Atlantic. Romans used perma-
nent nets to catch the tuna, just
as the Spanish fishermen use
today. Baelo Claudia provided
the Roman delicacy garum to the
whole Roman Empire.
The town thrived during the
time of Emperor Claudius, who
gave the town its name. The
decline of Baelo Claudia began in
the 2nd century AD and was has-
tened by seaquakes and earth-
quakes. Hordes of Celtic and
Barbary pirates later plagued the
town, causing it to be aban-

the walkways of the museum.
As we viewed the ancient fishing
equipment, we learned how they
caught tuna and preserved it by
using the salt vats. We watched
a video on the process of mak-

the walls. We learned about the
society and daily life of Roman
times, including the recreation of
a Roman bedroom, religion and
funerary rites. Ancient funer-
ary urns (suitable for burial and
funerals) stood nearby.

our journey through the ancient

viewed the remains of several dif-
ferent temples, including a tem-
ple to Isis an Egyptian goddess.
Continuing on we climbed some
steps and found ourselves in a
theater. It was located on a slope
to take advantage of terracing for
seating. I visualized the crowds
and the performers on stage.
Closer to the sea we walked
on old, uneven, stone streets.
