(Neb.)-Crawford Residents Encouraged To Provide Input At Budget Workshops
(CRAWFORD)-Crawford residents are invited to come and participate in two upcoming city budget workshops taking place this week. Mayor Terry Haugen (HOW-gun) said in a recent conversation with KCSR News that he hopes residents will get involved in the budget process and help provide input on how they feel the city should balance the upcoming budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
Haugen said it’s not an easy thing to balance the city’s budget, and every area has to be scrutinized. Some talk has been that the city pool will be shut down due in part to high maintenance costs. Another involves the city library. Haugen says there are several options the council is considering right now, and none of them are a done deal. Herein lies the importance of the public’s input, he said, so the council can move forward knowing what the citizens of Crawford would like done.
The budget workshops will be held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at City Hall council chambers, 135 Elm Street. They begin at 6:30 p.m. each night and are open to the public.
