Council passes 2014 budget plan|

The City of Oneonta adopted its 2014 budget by a vote of 6 to 2 Tuesday night, Oneonta Mayor Dick Miller said.

The budget was the same as one approved last week, he said. The $15,314,600 general fund carries a $4,515,615 tax levy, which is up $69,799, or 1.57 percent. A homeowner with a property assessed at $100,000 will see a tax bill of $1,432.55, an increase of $24.04.

The budget applies $538,000 of the unassigned fund balance to balance the budget. Council members had debated the amount of fund balance to apply, and whether to keep four unfilled positions — two each in the police and fire departments. All four positions were maintained.

Also at the meeting, the common council created a new city ordinance titled “Airport Commission.” It will be the subject of a public hearing at the Dec. 17 common council meeting, Miller said.
