Mayor Frank Huttle III today announced that the budget introduced this Tuesday at the City Council meeting will contain zero base tax increases without a reduction in services.  The mayor also warned that it was necessary to reduce spending across all levels of government in order to get Englewood’s fiscal house in order.

“This budget does not contain any tax increases but much more work remains to be done to ensure that it becomes a reality,” said Mayor Huttle.  “I look forward to vigorous public participation and debate before it is adopted this spring and I look forward to working side by side with the city council, every department and resident in the city to produce a fiscally responsible budget.”

The Mayor’s Budget and Finance Commission held over 18 meetings on the 2011 budget starting in Nov. 2010. Additionally, the council held approximately ten meetings in council workshops to prepare the budget being introduced on Tuesday. More meetings will be held in the next several months to finalize the budget.

“While this budget does not contain painful tax increases and service cuts, I want to be very clear that Englewood’s finances are at the tipping point.  We have long over-relied on the old way of doing things, which has led to spiraling costs and dwindling revenue.  Quite simply, we need to reinvent the way our government operates. If we don’t act now, collectively as one community, residents will lose valuable city services and employees will face lost jobs, lost compensation or both in the years to come.”

Once the budget is published on March 31st, the city will hold a meeting seeking input from the public  on  April 12th.  The final budget is scheduled to be adopted on May 6th.

Dear Residents,

As you are aware, the City Council and I are nearing the end of our budget deliberations. Our final Budget Workshop Meeting before the 2011 Budget is introduced has been scheduled. This meeting will take place tomorrow evening, March 14th, at 6:30pm in City Hall, and will be open to the public.

The following evening, March 15th, the City Manager will introduce the 2011 Budget at the City Council Meeting at 7:30pm in the Municipal Court building. Once the 2011 Budget is introduced, a public hearing will be scheduled no later than 28 days after its introduction as mandated by the State. This meeting has been scheduled for April 12, 2011.

Agendas for both of these meetings are now available and are posted on my website, Englewood One. I once again strongly encourage you join us at both the Workshop and the City Council Meeting.

Regards,
Mayor Frank Huttle III
