Proposed Budget Presented for Council Discussion Tuesday Night

Published on July 24, 2013 by Larry Crippen

Last night, the Huntsville City Council watched and participated in a PowerPoint presentation and discussion of the proposed upcoming budget for the City.

City Manager Matt Benoit prefaced the presentation with the input he hoped for from councilmembers. . . .

In efforts to move toward a balanced budget, the proposed budget would eliminate nine expected vacant positions and a total reduction in force of $414,470. There is also no recommended tax rate increase.

There is also no water rate increase planned. A new full-time community budget development position with $14,000 in benefits is part of the new budget plan. The $22,500 to pay for fireworks will be put back in this time.

On August 6th at 3:30, the council will discuss the tax rate and health insurance. The council would review the recommended budget, and a possible public hearing on the tax rate if necessary is scheduled for August 20th.

Budget public hearings are scheduled for September.
