City Comptroller Glenn Klocko said he expects to end the fiscal year in June with a surplus of as much as $300,000. It could also be as little as $100,000, he said.
Last year, the city wound up with $1.3 million extra, thanks in large part to the Board of Education's unexpected success in delivering a hefty amount back to the city's general fund.
This time around, Klocko said, the schools are unlikely to have much left over, but they do anticipate finishing in the black again.
A few hundred thousand dollars extra out of a $172 million budget isn't much, of course, but it's better than coming up short.
