City completes first round of budget talks

By Ashley M. Casey

Mayor Ronald L. Woodward Sr. announced Tuesday that the Fulton Common Council has worked out a preliminary budget for 2014. He stressed that many changes are still to come before the budget is presented for a public hearing, the date of which is to be announced.

Under the current version of the budget, taxes would increase 27.864 percent, bringing the tax rate up to .021789. Woodward said this rate was by no means the final rate.

The public hearing date will be announced at a community development meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, at the Fulton Municipal building. The Common Council is holding a budget workshop immediately after the meeting.
