Chubbuck Budget Public Hearing Challenges Council

The City of Chubbuck Budget 2013-2014 Hearing had a good number of people attending although only 4 actually spoke.  The consensus of the group was to hold the budget at a cash neutral basis.  In other words, keep the budget at last year's level and still fund road maintenance.

Road maintenance should get a major boost but not enough at this point to initiate projects.  In addition, the City is looking at raising the disconnection/reconnection fee from $10 to somewhere between $50 and $75.

We will be getting the actual documentation from the clerk's office to post, as well as posting the uncut budget hearing on our web sites.  We will notify you as soon as posted.
