City schedules budget meetings

GLOVERSVILLE – The Common Council has scheduled two budget meetings for later this week.

The meetings will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday in council chambers in City Hall.

Mayor Dayton King last month presented his proposed 2014 city budget, which calls for a nearly 2 percent tax-levy decrease, two new city jobs and funding for local senior citizens agencies.

The $15.8 million budget proposal, which is up $400,000 from this year’s budget, calls for the hiring of a new deputy building inspector and a police officer, as well as $3,500 for the Office for Aging and $8,500 for the senior center.
