Bay City Braces For Another Budget Deficit 4-25-2011

Commissioners in Bay City are bracing for another year in the red heading toward Monday's presentation of the proposed 2011-12 city budget.
A deficit similar to the $1.6 million faced this year is expected due to anticipated cuts in state funding, according to reports. The budget year begins July 1.
Commission President Kathleen Newsham warns that the news is "going to be bad."
City Manager Robert Belleman said no municipal layoffs are expected in the proposed budget and that money from a reserve fund will be used to cover a deficit.
Bay City registered $1.4 million in savings last year.
Belleman said the city's revenue sharing from the state is down by at least a third.
A copy of the budget will be on display for the public to view in the City Clerk's Office, and will also be available online at
A budget work session has been scheduled for May 14 for the mayor, commission and city staff to review and discuses the proposed budget.
