City sets workshops, public hearings on budget | ENUMCLAW GOVERNMENT

As they set sail on another budget season, members of the Enumclaw City Council will again be facing some turbulent budget waters.

Fallout continues from the recession that began thwarting the economy in 2008 and Enumclaw continues looking at tough times when it comes to matching anticipated revenues with desired expenditures.

Mayor Liz Reynolds has not yet released her budget, but the council has starting received tentative information with an eye to the 2013 spending plan.

City administration briefed the council on the potential revenue picture two weeks ago and plenty is planned for the next month. The council will host budget workshops beginning at 7 p.m, on Oct. 17 and Oct. 24. On Oct. 22 and Nov. 13, the council hosts public hearings on estimated revenues and the setting of a property tax levy for next year. Also on the 22nd, the council has a public hearing to debate solid waste rates to be charged next year.

The public hearings will begin at 7:30 and all sessions take place in city hall, 1339 Griffin Avenue.
