Shoreline City Council activities November and December 2010

Monday, December 20, 2010

From the Office of the Shoreline City Manager

The end of the year always seems to be a very busy time for the Council, with adoption of the budget and end of the year wrap-up of outstanding issues. 

On November 22, the Council adopted the 2011 budget. Even with continuing increases in police and jail costs, health insurance premiums and state mandated retirement costs, the Council was able to pass an operations budget that was 1% lower than the 2010 budget, net one-time accounting transfers. 

The Council is committed to continuing to find efficiencies where possible while still providing the great services that help make Shoreline such a great place to live.
