There is no tax increase and no noticeable difference
in this year's budget. Finance Officer Hal Stanley explained
at a public hearing on the proposed budget prior
to the Holden town board meeting Monday night.
Keeping the 25-cents per $100 valuation, the budget
calls for raising an estimated $181,800 from ad valorem
taxes in the $556,845 budget for the fiscal vear heainnino
Stanley said the work session on the budget was the
easiest he and the other commissioner who has served
the longest time could remember. He credited Town
Administrator Bob Buck with knowing what the commission
would and wouldn't do, budget-wise, and drafting
the document accordingly.
The only question from the public during the hearing
was an inquiry about whose identity of the other longtime
commissioner to whom Stanley referred. "It's Jim
Griffin," he answered.
While the audience did not question the budget, commissioner
Gloria Barrett raised two questions she said
need "to get settled" before passage of the budget.
One of her concerns is the more stringent reI

categories show substantial decreases.
Expenses for streets under the Powell Bill show the
biggest drop, with $36,170 in the proposed budget as

$800 is budgeted for the coming year. In fiscal '85.
$16,700 was budgeted and $17,150 was spent.
Governing body expenses dropped in this year's
budget to $12,060 from $17,227 in fiscal '85 and the
$14,576 actually spent. Elmination of $5,500 in contracted
services accounts for most of the drop.
Of the categories increased, planning and zoning
shows the biggest jump with $18,625 budgeted in fiscal
'86. This compares to $8,625 budgeted in fiscal '85 and
$6,205 actually spent. Professional services under this
category accounted for the big jump since $17,875 is proposed
in the new budget while only $7,500 was budgeted
in fiscal '85.
The new budget calls for salary increases of about six
percent for administration and 14 percent in the police
Expenses of inspections is up to $10,128 in the new
budget, compared with $13,418 budgeted in fiscal '85
and $12,900 actually spent. Mast of the difference is addition
of a full-time salary of $15,000 and elimination of
part-time salary expenses of $10,400.
Commissioners, who will meet June 17 at 7:30 p.m. to
hold public hearings on rezoning requests, will more
than likely take final action on the budget at that time.
