No Comments on 2014 City Budget

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The city of Sheboygan held a public hearing on its 2014 budget Monday night and no one came.  No one spoke out at the hearing on the 52.5-million dollar budget.  Finance Committee Chairman Don Hammond said he hasn't heard anything from constituents either by phone or email concerning the budget.  He said, "I'm confident we have a good budget going forward."  As proposed, the budget will mean about a dime increase in the city portion of the tax rate, or about 15 dollars on a $150,000 home.  The budget has been prepared with little controversy this year, unlike the last few years when the council struggled to combat dwindling state revenue and falling property values.  Hammond said it will be nice to put this budget to bed and then move onto 2015 when some very difficult choices will have to be made.  The budget will come back before the council  for final action in two weeks.
