BUDGET FINANCE COMMITTEE:

Council President Smith advised that the budget committee-Council Member Smith, Council Member Dunbar, and Council Member Armbrecht had met and their recommendation for the 2011 budgets was 2% increase for salary of employees and office budgets to remain flat at 2010 levels.  If there were any increases in office budgets due to contracts that increase yearly it should be noted and a written explanation provided with the budget submitted.  Council Member Armbrecht advised that this was a guideline and could be revised once assessed valuation was received.
