CITY COUNCIL BEGINS WORK ON NEW BUDGET




A just over 20-million dollar budget is before Port Huron City Council tonight in the first of a few meetings on the plan.  It is the object of a special meeting Thursday evening and is set for adoption on May 26th. The squeeze of recent years continues with declining property values seeing a big drop in tax revenues.  Changes in state payments have also been cause for concern. Perhaps the best evidence of belt tightening is the continued loss of positions at City Hall which in ten years has seen a loss of nearly 100 full time employees. The budget resolutions include special fund accounts too like the Downtown Development Authority and McMorran Place.
