Albion City Council tabled the city’s 10-year comprehensive plan, but adopted the 2010-11 city budget as presented last Tuesday night, Sept. 14.
A public hearing was held on the lengthy comprehensive plan, which is intended as a guide for city planning over the next 10 years. It is intended to serve as a guide to land use development, public utilities and facilities development, housing and various other aspects of community development over the next 10 years.
No public comment was received at the hearing.
The 2010-11 budget was approved as proposed. The city’s tax rate of 40.6 cents is lower than last year’s rate, but it will raise total property taxes of $418,511 — up about $134,249 from last year’s city total of $284,262.
The new budget calls for total disbursements and transfers of $4.4 million.
