The annual City Budget Public Hearing is set for 7:00 p.m. Thursday, May 10, 2012 at City Hall, 66 S. Main St.
The City Council reviewed the budget during a workshop in April and will hear public comments on the proposed $7.4 million budget at the hearing. While the proposed budget reflects a decrease in revenues from the previous year, there is no increase in millage.
It also does not take into account the possible elimination of the personal property tax, or a proposed charge from the Red Flannel Festival for the city to use its logo. The City Council has not formally been presented with that proposal yet, and it is still in the Red Flannel Ad Hoc committee.
