COMMENTS FROM AUDIENCE:
THIS NOTICE IS GIVEN AT THE DIRECTION OF THE MAYOR PURSUANT TO CHAPTER 21, CODE OF IOWA AND THE LOCAL RULES OF SAID GOVERNMENTAL BODY. POSTED JANUARY 18, 2019.
The Cresco City Council met in special session on January 21, 2019, at 5:30 pm at City Hall. Council Members Brenno, McCarville, Fortune, Bouska and Carman were present. No council members were absent. Also in attendance were Mayor Bohle, PWD Freidhof, City Clerk Girolamo and Deputy Clerk McGee.
Girolamo presented the revised proposed budget for 2019/2020. After recording adjustments previously discussed, the budget now shows an overall net income of $79,326. The revised budget also shows that the property tax levy would decrease about $.72 per thousand from last year’s levy. The current year has a loss budgeted over $2 million so Council does not want to cut into reserves again next year and also wants to keep the property tax levy as low as possible.
All equipment and project requests were reviewed again and a few more cuts were made. Girolamo will make the adjustments and notify Council of the adjusted budget before finalizing it.
The status of the Nuisance Abatement process of several properties was discussed.
Bouska moved to adjourn at 6:52 pm. Carman seconded and it passed all ayes. The next regular Cresco City Council meeting will be January 21, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Cresco City Hall.
Mayor Mark Bohle
City Clerk Michelle Girolamo
