Auburn City Council Debates Budget

Auburn City Council members are balking at including a 1.26% tax increase in the city budget.  At Thursday's council meeting they discussed dipping into the city's $5.8 Million reserve fund to keep taxes flat in the upcoming fiscal year that begins on July 1. 

City Clerk Chuck Mason said on Friday's Finger Lakes Morning News, it's the latest in an ongoing effort over the past few years to bring city spending under control.

Mason added councilors also debated implementing Planning and Economic Development Director Jenny Haines' proposal to hire a full-time planning assistant.  

The budget will be tweaked before a public hearing that will be held before the council meeting on May 18, with a vote on the final spending plan set for the June 1 meeting.
