Requests for money were the order of the day as the Smithville Board of Mayor and Aldermen began prioritizing municipal expenditures for the coming year, listening to need assessments from its department heads. “We spend so much time fundraising,” revealed Chamber of Commerce Director Suzanne Williams in asking for a slight increase in the city’s contribution to the chamber. She wants $15,000 which is a $5,000 increase from the city’s normal outlay to her department.
