cityhall211111By Terry Rogers

On Monday, June 24, 2013, Finance Commission Director and Councilman Skip Pikus recommended that City Council approve the FY 2014 budget discussed at a workshop on June 11 and 12, 2013. The budget, totaling over $41 million was presented to the Finance Commission by City Manager Richard Carmean.

“The budget is balanced with no tax increases,” explained Councilman Pikus. “This budget demonstrates that Milford operates with good leadership and good management.” Council approved the adoption of the Fiscal Year 2013-14 Budget and Capital Program unanimously.

In other finance news, Councilman Pikus requested that the City Manager, Chief of Police and Finance Director develop a cost analysis for building a new police station. The cost analysis will include the cost to purchase the land, build the building, install necessary infrastructure, including lighting, entrances and exits, as well as projected operational costs for the new building. Councilman Pikus asked that the cost analysis be presented to council in order to begin seeking funding for the new police station.

“One of the main reasons we need to look at the cost of this new building is that it will more than likely need to go to referendum in order to fund the new police station,” explained Councilman Pikus. City council voted unanimously for the cost analysis, which will be presented to council at a future meeting.
