PostSubject: Was Mr. Lang's and the Mayor's Approach to Balancing the Budget on the Backs of Children and the Elderly?   Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:53 pm

A number of councilmen during the meeting Monday night conveyed legitimate concerns that the City's Budget issued was placed on the back of the children by way of cutbacks and increases on usage fees at the swimming pool and increasing fees to the elderly.

Councilmen Berkner, Anderson and Dorry addressed the concern while the Mayor shoved it aside by saying it was a matter of timing.

The golf course fees remained at the same level despite the fact that in October over $30,000 was transferred from the Sewer Fund to the Golf Course. The mayor I think forgot about this transfer when he claimed the golf course broke even.

Do you think this is right to balance the budget on the backs of children and elderly?
