Ivesdale board makes budget plans

IVESDALE — The village board tweaked this year's appropriation ordinance and talked about how it plans to spend money during the new fiscal year.

The board is now planning to spend $299,600 in the 2013-14 fiscal year. The appropriation represents a 24.9 percent increase over last year's appropriation of $239,900.

The ordinance gives the village the authority to spend up to the designated amounts in the various categories. Trustees doubled the amount appropriated for the maintenance of streets and alleys to $40,000 and increased the amount for drainage and tile repairs from $30,000 to $40,000. The amount for holiday decorations was lowered from $3,000 to $2,500.

Added to the appropriations this year were $21,000 for professional engineering services and $2,500 for attorney fees and legal publications.
