Council talks budget during special meeting

March 28, 2016

With Ward 4 Council Representative Russ Neil taking the lead during a special meeting he requested, Council talked about the city’s operating budget and made a list of initiatives and concerns for further consideration. Among the ideas discussed: hiring more safety forces to reduce overtime, increasing community policing, selling or finding a management company for the city’s two golf courses, increasing revenue from Lock 3 and redirecting spending to benefit neighborhoods.
