The Committee reviewed the 2010 General Fund and Sewer Fund budgets for final recommendation to the full Council. The millage will be set at 10.585, representing a 4% increase. The proposed increase in the Sewer fee is 4.5% which is needed to cover the additional $117,000 expense being charged by the County Sewer Authority.
Ms. Lustgarten reported that a new arbitration date for the Police contract, if needed, has been moved from January to March.
The Committee will recommend to the full Council that it pass a Resolution supporting HR3007. HR3007 is being presented in Congress in support of providing federal funding directly to small and mid-sized municipalities instead of funds being passed through county and state governments.
The Committee adjourned to Executive Session.
