Council gets early look at 2009-10 budget
With nothing fancy and no real frills in mind, the Farmington City Council has set to work on a 2010 that will likely include the need to come up with an extra $595,000, just to maintain the status quo.
The budget cycle started Monday with a workshop to go over the basic objectives for the coming year. At the top of the list is finding a way to fund an expected $350,000 cut in state aid, and still address pre-approved items and state mandated expenditures.
