Plan to use levy funds for city administration raises objections
May 1, 2019
The City of Sweet Home Budget Committee held off on final decisions Monday night, April 29, after hearing objections from three people regarding a plan to transfer funds from the police and library operating levies to a new Internal Services Fund to pay administration and finance costs.
Budget Committee Chairman Dave Holley suggested waiting until Tuesday evening to avoid rushing a decision.
Budget Committee members spent the evenings of Thursday and Monday reviewing the proposed 2019-20 budget, which takes effect at the beginning of the next fiscal year, July 1, if adopted.
