Council OKs 'unbalanced' budget despite concern
Mayor says budget's numbers are deceiving
In its last meeting of the 2011-12 fiscal year Tuesday, the Morris City Council approved by a 5-to-1 vote the budget for the next fiscal year.
Alderman Drew Muffler was the lone vote against the budget. A vote by the mayor was required because five votes were needed to pass the budget. With Muffler's no vote, there were only four yes votes.
Mayor Richard Kopczick, aldermen Ken Sereno, Julian Houston, Duane Wolfe and Bill Martin voted in favor of the budget. Aldermen Don Hansen, Randy Larson and Barry Aldrich were absent from the meeting.
