Another chance for the public to get in on city budget work goes next week.
February 10 at 7pm at the Kruk.
“The goal for the 2020 budget is to be able to have a provisional budget available early in the year,” say city officials.
Following a series of meetings in the fall, it was decided that a 2 percent increase to the mill rate is in the cards for all classes except for major industry already sitting at 20 percent. Utility rates are updates with new CPI increases of 2.4 percent. The city does not expect to enter any long term borrowing for 2020, and expects to reduce operations by $154K by cutting route 3 from city transit services.
A third meeting and five year financial plan are expected to be discussed by the city on March 9.
