Residents can comment on 2013 city budget
November 27, 2012
The last chance for residents to comment on the 2013 city budget is soon.
City Council members plan to host a public hearing on the $89.5 million spending plan.
The proposed $35 million general fund encompasses the dollars used to fund police and fire services, community development and planning, parks and recreation, and municipal government.
The total proposed budget for next year includes dollars for capital expenses and from other accounts.
The council meets next at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3 in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way.
In a unanimous decision Nov. 5, council members rejected a proposal to increase the property tax rate by 1 percent next year. The proposed property tax increase is aimed to bolster the general fund.
