Albany City Commission approves budget

June 29, 2005

Albany- Albany city commissioners gave final approval to a budget that doesn't raise taxes but does include higher fees. The 79.4 million dollar budget is two million dollars more than last year.

To help offset that increase, we'll pay more for city sewer and garbage service. The extra revenue will also allow the city to pay more competitive wages for some workers.

"There's a two percent cost of living increase and another two and a half percent merit increase. In addition to those increases some employees that have been classified as underpaid will be brought up to standard," said Kevin Hogencamp, Asst. City Manager.

Commissioners did not approve a five year strategic plan recommended by consultants that could affect spending. They said they haven't had enough time to study it and they want a new city manager to have input.
