City of Maumee is projecting a balanced operating budget going into the new
year. City officials say that is primarily because of reduced spending and
a year ago, the city was projecting a $1.7 million deficit. Mayor Rich Carr
says he looked at the different places in the budget where they could cut
expenses and they eliminated some spending in the city law division and they're
making changes in some of the overtime structure to their dispatcher units.
says his administration looked everywhere they could provide cuts that would
not impact the residents.
we don't have a balanced budget, we could end up like Detroit in five years,"
Carr said. "You cannot operate with a continued deficit and it's not going to
impact our residents at all. In my opinion, these are all necessary cuts."
Carr says this projected balanced budget is also thanks to increased revenue
for the city. He says going into this, the last thing he wanted to do was raise
taxes, and that's why the cuts are being made.
says going forward, the city will continue to maintain a balanced budget by
spending on things that are necessary.
