The Director of Finance and the Mayor shall furnish a fiscal report of revenues, expenditures, and appropriation balances to each member of Council, in writing, not later than the 15th day of February of each year.
   The Director of Finance and the Mayor shall also furnish to Council, not later than the second regular meeting of the month of March of each calendar year, an ordinance making appropriation for the expenditures of the Municipality during the year.  Such ordinance shall be adopted by Council in its original form or with such revisions as it may find proper.
