?Bower predicts $1 million balance by January 1 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 December 2008 00:00
???    The Salem Common Council met in regular session on Monday evening, December 8.  All members were present, unanimously approving the minutes of previous meetings, the payroll and all claims except for one submitted by the Board of Aviation Commissioners.
    Mayor David Bower told the Council that efforts to cut expenses are paying off.  According to Bower the General Fund balance should be in excess of $1 million as of the first of the year.  That estimate is an increase of $343,000 over the beginning of 2008.
    Continuing his belt tightening theme, Bower said that he expects tax revenues to decline for the foreseeable future and that some tough decisions will have to be made about which projects to fund.  Pointing to grants from both the State of Indiana and the federal government as ways to help complete some of those projects, Bower alluded to one such grant targeted at infrastructure in the amount of $3.2 million with an $800,000 local match.
