Council holding public hearing tonight on proposed 2014 budget...

The Jamestown City Council will hold a public hearing on the city's $33.6-million, 2014 budget proposal tonight at 6 p.m.  Lawmakers have been reviewing the spending plan with department heads for the past few weeks... since Mayor Sam Teresi unveiled the proposal Oct. 8.  Councilmembers have cut $30,000 to pay off some debt due to the city's recent upgrade in it's bond rating.  Mayor Sam Teresi says that amount could go up to more than $100,000 once lawmakers fashion the final budget.  But, at this point, no other cuts have been made... and, the mayor says Jamestown is in the same boat as most surrounding municipalities that have had to increase taxes.  The amount being paid to the state retirement fund... Worker's Compensation and other areas have increased.  Teresi is hopeful that lawmakers can cut the projected 2.68-percent tax increase to at least a more modest increase.  He says his proposed executive budget increases the tax rate by 55-cents per $1,000 full value.
