The Ferriday Board of Aldermen will consider Mayor Sherrie McMahon’s proposed $2.6 million general fund budget for the fiscal year 2020-2021 during its meeting regular meeting Thursday at 6 p.m.

The meeting will be held by teleconference for the third straight month because of restrictions with the coronavirus.

Expenses include $44,000 for McMahon and $30,600 for five aldermen.

Employee salaries total $950,000.
