Manager: SL close to having balanced budget in 2011-12

Village Council will host a budget public hearing at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Barber School, 102 W. Exchange St. The 2011-2012 fiscal year document will maintain the current millage rate of 11.6619 mills. Water and sewer rates are scheduled to decline a net 10 percent and all key services will be maintained. The document reflects a 3.5 percent reduction in revenues. Total operating costs are budgeted to decrease more than 2.5 percent - $33,442 less than last year.
