TRIM hearing not attended

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Chiefland City Commission held its first Truth in Millage (TRIM) and proposed 2008-2009 budget hearing on September 9 and, well, no one was really interested.

No citizens came to the hearing.

But the commission, without absent Mayor Teal Pomeroy, went ahead and gave preliminary approval to the proposed 4.75 mills and a general budget of $3,018,766.18 for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1.

Pomeroy was not at the meeting due to a business commitment said Vice Mayor Teresa Barron.

During the hearing on the budget, the commission got good news on the fire budget from Barron and Fire Chief John Ward.

Ward said the Levy County Commission, which contributes to the city's fire budget has raised its annual contribution from about $120,000 this year to $193,560 for the coming year.

"We thought we did pretty good," said Barron who missed most of the commission's regular Monday meeting to attend the County Commission's budget workshop and lobby for the fire department money.
