Mountlake Terrace: Budget maintains services, avoids layoffs
The City Council this week adopted its 2013-2014 biennial budget and the 2013 property tax ordinance.
The budget maintains services for residents at current levels and does not include layoffs or reductions in services.
The city will continue moving forward on many key fronts including economic development, Town Center, capital infrastructure improvements and a strategy that ensures financial stability and sustainability.
The council also adopted the 2013-2018 transportation plan. Due to the continued economic downturn, the city delayed or staggered implementation for many of the programs to reduce costs.
Projects that use grants, state or federal appropriations, funding partnerships and development impact fees have been maintained.
For more information about the budget or property taxes, call finance director Sonja Springer at 425-744-6204 or go to www. cityofmlt.com.
