Council tackles budget

Pulaski Town Council will begin budget talks for the upcoming 2010-11 Fiscal Year Tuesday at its regular monthly work session.
On the agenda is discussion about the town’s water and sewer funds for the coming fiscal year. Town Manager John Hawley already indicated at this month’s regular meeting that rates to Pepper’s Ferry Regional Wastewater Treatment Authority can be expected to rise in the next fiscal year. He explained that the rates are determined on a five-year average of flow into the plant. Now that the lengthy drought has lifted and flows have increased, the average will be higher and, thus, rates will be higher.
Hawley has estimated a nearly $196,000 shortfall in the sewer fund this fiscal year due to record flows caused by recent rains and melting snow and ice.
According to a summary of Tuesday night’s agenda, the water fund will be impacted by the need to fund all or part of a consultant’s fee and capital costs for required upgrades to water rate flow controllers at the town’s water treatment plant.
Other items on the work session agenda include:
n An update on the town’s Brownfield program grant;
n Execution of a engineering contract for the Dora Highway rehabilitation project;
n Discussion of appointments to a Blight Committee recommended by Pulaski Redevelopment and Housing Authority;
n An update on structures damaged by ice and snow buildup on roofs; and
n Review of a proposed changes to the town’s drug policy.
