A line of severe thunderstorms that rolled through Lima in late June has busted the overtime budget for the City of Lima.
Those storms caused more than 365 thousand dollars in damages and overtime costs to the city of Lima alone.
City officials are hoping for some kind of federal assistance but that's not guaranteed as FEMA is still investigating the statewide damages due to the storm.
Public works director Howard Elstro told city council Monday night that most of their overtime budget is gone.
Also during the meeting, Lima city council approved a number of ordinances related to the sale of bond issues for capital improvements around the city.
Part of the money will go for police and fire dispatch software, a new fire truck and other vehicles like trucks and lawn mowers.
Council also unanimously passed a proposed rezoning, making way for an expansion of Meat City on E. Kibby.
