DALLAS — New Orleans expects to see a slight increase in general fund revenues next year, but not enough to roll back a spending cut already in effect for most city departments, Deputy Mayor Andy Kopplin told the city’s Revenue Estimating Conference.

The revenue panel on Monday adopted a forecast of $491.4 million for general fund collections next year, $8 million more than the latest estimate of 2012 revenues but less than had been expected for 2012 when the panel adopted its official forecast in October 2011. The city operates on a calendar fiscal year.
