Mayor Moore announces budget cut of $1.6 million to Elkhart
ELKHART, Ind. – Due to the failure to pass Elkhart’s Trash and Recycling Fee Ordinance, Mayor Dick Moore announced he is now forced to make drastic budget cuts.
With the loss of $10.5 million in property tax revenue, Moore said he was forced to cut $1.6 million from the current budget to look for savings in the 2013 budget in case of a loss in 2014.
We have attached the letter sent out by the mayor to the people of Elkhart listing the cuts.
We’ll have much more on the announcement in later additions of ABC57 News.
