City Council Working on Budget
Posted by news on 5/19/2018 6:01:00 AM.

At least four out of the five members of the Watertown City Council are committed to bringing the pending tax hike under the tax cap. According to 7 News, after making a few cuts already this budget season, the city comptroller says lawmakers have to trim a little more than $500,000 to stay under the state's 2.4 percent tax cap. Council members will bring their ideas to the table at next week's budget wrap-up session to find ways to get under the tax cap. The goal is to not have to use more money from the city's fund balance, which is essentially its savings account, to balance the budget. The city is already using $2 million from it in the upcoming budget that's tied for the most since the turn of the century. Council members are hoping to hear from taxpayers at a public hearing about the budget Monday night at 7:30. If council can find a way to be at the tax cap, the comptroller says taxes will go up around $18 for a home assessed at $100,000. Originally it was going to be quadruple that.
