High Budget Noon in Cranston

Carroll Andrew Morse

That's it?!! The meeting just adjourned. Apparently the hearing with public input is not until Thursday.

Mayor Fung will ask for a 5.46% increase in the tax levy, requiring some kind of bypass of the state tax cap, possible because of the probable cut in state aid.

Greetings from the City of Cranston. where Mayor Allan Fung's is presently delivering his FY10 budget address in front of the City Council and several hundred people in the auditorium. I'll let you know if anything exciting happens...

Andrew, was there any indication how much of that is because the concessions for the police contract were not accepted?

In this fiscal year, it couldn't have been a big factor since this year's savings for the police contract figured to be $400k, and the budget deficit is approx. $7 mil. The cut in state aid is the biggest factor for this year's deficit.
