draft Draft

Administrator Delo advised that the Committee has already received the budget calendar, that initial budgets are due to the Finance Department on Thursday (8/15), and the Mayor, Finance Director and City Administrator will review with each department over the next week; the proposed budgets will then be refined by determining cuts and balances in preparation for the study session and draft executive budget. Draft numbers indicate that the City is the third lowest community in Brown County for net new construction, which has been a compounding issue, although it is expected to increase with new subdivisions and manufacturing development. The City has contacted legislators to pursue legislation that allows non-profits that are tax exempt to count towards net new construction. The Mayor encouraged contact with legislators on both this issue and that of the southern bridge. A discussion followed on exemption limitations for private colleges and that churches have no limitations. Alderperson Crevier confirmed that the October 3 Budget Study Session begins at 5:00 p.m.
