Sellersburg closer to overhaul of water system

Also: First step taken on 2014 budget



In addition to the update presented for the town’s water system, two budget matters were heard by the council Monday.

One action took care of the cuts that had yet to be made to this year’s budget.

The council unanimously approved cutting $60,031 from the 2013 budget. Sellersburg Clerk-Treasurer David Kinder explained that when Indiana’s Department of Local Government Finance returned the 1782 notice it notified the town that it would have to cut several hundred thousand dollars from the budget. But a response from the town reduced the cuts to $60,000.

“We asked for the additional appropriations and they approved everything but the $60,000,” Kinder said.

Kinder added that the $60,000 was not cut earlier in the year because Sellersburg knew it had the money to continue to operate and the cuts were not necessary at that time.

The council also took its first steps to determine the 2014 budget, which is expected to be presented at its Oct. 14 meeting.
