Walker: More room to cut city budget

September 5, 2013

The board voted Tuesday to reduce its initial plan for a 2.78-mil increase in ad valorem tax on residents’ real and personal property to 1.98 mils, with Ward 5 Alderman Scott Maynard recommending the board capture the revenue difference through cost savings.
