PARROTTSVILLE-Parrottsville City Council members
approved, on first reading, a 2013-2014 fiscal year budget that goes into
effect July 1, if approved on a second reading later this month, at their
monthly meeting held Thursday, June 6.
The new fiscal year budget projects
$152,190 in new revenue, and the same amount in general fund expenditures. It
also has a projected "carryover" general fund balance from the
current fiscal year of $186,790.
Mayor Keller said the budget calls for an additional
office person to be used to add two half-day shifts for a receptionist at Town
Hall so that it is open to the public more than the present eight hours a week.
She said, "We've received complaints that we're only
open eight hours a week." She said in a follow-up phone interview on
Friday, June 7, that a decision to add an employee had not been reached, but
she wanted the funds in place in case the City Council does decide to hire a
receptionist to keep Town Hall open more hours.
