City eyes smaller budget for 2018-2019

With certified values up for 2018, City of Slaton residents likely will see a lower tax rate and a nominal increase in the cost of some services.

The Slaton City Commission held a budget workshop Monday and considered a budget that is below last year’s.

City Administrator Mike Lamberson presented a proposed budget of roughly $6.615  million, down from the 2017 budget of $6.942 million.

“We cut three to 10 percent from supply and maintenance from each department,” Lamberson told the commission.

The reduced budget also calls for a 2.5 percent salary increase for employees.
