Higher labor costs account for most of the increase in city budget

Email

Wage and benefit increases for city employees - plus higher costs for property assessment and fire and ambulance services - are the main reasons for a 3.6 percent increase in the city of Hudson's general fund budget for 2005.

The City Council adopted the $7,396,281 budget at its Nov. 15 meeting.

City Administrator Devin Willi said the $254,648 increase in spending next year is conservative when you consider the amount of growth in the city.
