Mayor Finch Begins Budget Hearings; What Say You?

Mayor Bill Finch submitted his proposed budget Monday night that spanks city homeowners several hundred dollars more a year in taxes, most of it to cover additional education and pension spending.

Tonight (Tuesday) at 6 at City Council Chambers, 45 Lyon Terrace, the mayor begins the first in a series of public meetings to sell his spending plan with an eye toward the November election when voters will be asked to approve either an elected or appointed Board of Education. The mayor wants to appoint school board members.
