Crown Point City Budget Awaits Round Two

Share Tweet Email

September 16, 2013 — Crown Point city employees could receive a raise in 2014, but not everyone is happy about it.

Last night the Crown Point Common Council held a special meeting to vote on the first reading of the city’s 2014 budget which includes a three percent raise for city employees.

Councilman-at-Large Bill Feder questioned if the City could afford the additional payroll cost.  However, a majority of the council spoke in favor of the raise.

The City is trying to anticipate the effects of a new local option income tax, with plans to spend most of the funds generated by that tax on infrastructure projects.

The budget passed a preliminary vote and will be finalized after a second vote scheduled for September 26.
