Budget debate dwells on cash reserves

Email

ELLSWORTH -- There is a contradiction when it comes to the Ellsworth Village's 2009 budget.

On one hand, the village is spending less in 2009 than it did in 2008 -- about 1.92 percent less.

On the other hand, the Village Board plans on increasing property taxes by 2 percent after not raising the levy the past two years.
