The public is invited to a hearing on the budget at an open meeting Wednesday, Aug. 11, at 8 p.m. in the City Hall. The proposed budget is published in this issue of The Upper Des Moines. The major portions of the budget for which taxes must be raised locally are for streets, public safety, municipal enterprise, debt service and recreation. A total expenditure of $1,391, 031 is proposed for 19G6, which is an increase over previous years, but this includes a required figure for the municipal utilities within the city budget and actually requires no local taxes.
