Council Will Vote on New City Budgets on Tuesday


1 comment

Boise City Council members consider new spending plans for the city when they convene Tuesday evening. The proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2012 tops $330 million (approximately $14 million less than FY 2011) but it jumps to $350 million in FY 2013.

Among the recommendations: eliminating some positions through retirement and not filling vacancies, a 0.25-percent increase on an electric franchise fee (representing about 18 cents a month for an average homeowner) and a 1.5 percent increase in property taxes. Based on the decrease in property values, the average property tax bill is expected to go down by approximately $24.
