For your files – city budget, Todd Nelson

A couple of documents:

  • Here is a one-page "mid-year financial update" the city manager distributed last night. For background, see this story on how the city’s revenues are lagging. Phil Rodenberg said last night that a hiring freeze and additional attempts to cut spending are part of the effort to combat this problem, but two big revenue sources–sales taxes and meals taxes–will not be up to projected levels.
  • Yesterday, I received a letter from Kay C. Mackesey, who is the "clerk-treasurer-coordinator" in the Village of Lake Denton, Wisc., which is the hometown of Kalahari President Todd Nelson. Mackesey is a big fan of Nelson. To read her letter, click here for page one, and here for page two.
