Morton Grove Voting On Budget Monday
The budget does not contain a tax increase for taxpayers. It's similar to last year's, although the frequency of the village newsletter will increase.
Morton Grove trustees will vote on the 2013 budget on Monday, Dec. 10. The budget is substantially similar to last year's.
Neither the village budget nor the Morton Grove Library budget, which is contained within the village budget, will cause any tax increase in the village's portion of property tax bills.
"There are no major differences from last year," said Remy Navarrete, the village's finance director.
The budget, which can be viewed in detail on the village's website, assumes projected revenues of $24.87 million and expenses of $24.74 million, though Navarrete said those dollar amounts could change slightly when the budget is presented to trustees Monday.
One of the few differences from last year's budget is that the village newsletter, called The Morton Grove Exchange, will go out to residents bimonthly (every two months) rather than quarterly.
"One of the concerns we're getting from residents is that they only hear from us four times a year," said Navarrete.
Starting in 2014, plans call for the newsletter to go out monthly.
