The 2010 Budget is discussed.  C/Carr pointed out cuts she would like made.  B/A Finger states that the surplus is continually shrinking and if more budgetary cuts are made then the amount of surplus for 2011 will be less then anticipated and she doesn’t feel comfortable with that.  Mayor Reynolds states if we go with C/Carr’s recommendations to go from 5.1 cents down to 2 cents, next year you are facing a minimum of a 5-cent increase.  You will be short in revenue by $125,000.00.  Either you will have to cut the budget by $125,000.00, raise taxes or you find another revenue to acquire the $125,000.00.  Mayor Reynolds asks B/A Finger if that is an accurate statement of 2011.  B/A Finger responds yes.  Mayor Reynolds states based on that it is now the decision of council.
