Deiss disagrees with proposed levy increase
ELLSWORTH -- The Village Board got a preview of Ellsworth's 2009 budget Monday. The Finance, Purchasing and Buildings Committee is recommending a levy increase of 2 percent.
Committee Member Dave Deiss questions the plan, saying, "With unemployment going up and wages being frozen, I just don't think it is the right time to propose a levy increase," Deiss said in an interview Tuesday. He missed Monday's Village Board meeting.
