More budget talks tonight

Round 3 today

DIXON – City officials will continue today their pursuit to cut $2.4 million from a list of hopeful projects, equipment and personnel.

Talks involving Dixon commissioners and city department heads are expected to begin on capital projects and personnel requests, Finance Commissioner David Blackburn said at the city’s last budget session. Personnel requests have yet to be discussed.

At the end of budget talks, Finance Director Paula Meyer said the city will have a projected general fund balance of at least $900,000. Mayor Jim Burke was clear, “there won’t be an unbalanced budget.”

The $900,000 balance is needed to help build up the fund that was left $3.4 million in the red, because of the nearly $54 million theft by former Comptroller Rita Crundwell.

The budget workshop is the third; they are scheduled on the opposite Monday of City Council meetings until May. It begins at 6 p.m. in council chambers, 121 W. Second St.
