City board weighs proposed budget
The Board Aldermen had yet to reach an agreement on the proposed 2013-14 budget at press time Wednesday night.
An account of the process and decision will be available on rutlandherald.com and will appear in Friday’s print edition.
A number of aldermen have stated that while “every line” of the proposed $19 million budget, which included four new postions and a number of capital expenditures, was justified, the increase was too much for the taxpayers to bear.
However, there were strong disagreements over where to cut going into the special meeting that began at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
