Southwest City's board of aldermen brainstormed ways to cut city expenses in order to pay bills during the regular meeting Tuesday. City Clerk Missy Zinn explained to the council that, when the city received FEMA funds to repair roads, the money was placed into the General Fund but not earmarked for the project. As a result, the council overestimated revenue by $40,000 when making the 2019 budget.
