City of Findlay is welcoming an unexpected budget surplus for the end of 2013.
across the board were the theme during last year's budget talks for 2013. This
year, it's a different story thanks to controlled spending.
city has a budget of about $24 million now. Cuts in state and federal funding
led to a need for millions in cuts at the local level in the past.
Lydia Mihalik says a projected surplus of about $1.4 million at the end of 2013
is thanks to two factors.
in a completely different financial position than what we were last year, and a
lot of that, one, has to do with an improved economic condition, but two, has
everything to do with the fact that we found a way to control our personnel
costs," she said.
the surplus, Mihalik says it's still up to council on how they want to spend
the money for the 2014 budget, which will likely be passed at the beginning of
the new year.
we can continue to do the things that we've set as priorities within the
administration and hopefully get into 2014 with an emphasis on capital
improvements, but also again restoring some of our positions in safety and
service," Mihalik said.
