Sunnyside City Council Getting Closer to Passing 2013 Budget
The City of Sunnyside is getting closer to their 2013 budget after Thursday night's public meeting. No official decisions were made, but there was a lot of negotiating.
A poll showed council is not in favor of cutting the deputy police chief. Council is in favor of a utility tax increase between 6 and 18 percent. Firefighters are willing to forgo cost of living expense increases.
Council says they need to make up about $1.7 million through higher revenue and cuts.
The next meeting is scheduled for December 27.
