Panel continues review of Nashua mayor's budget plan
On Monday, members of the aldermanic Budget Review Committee continued analyzing the spending plan of Mayor Donalee Lozeau, making several minor adjustments to the recommended fiscal year 2015 budget.
Multiple meetings have been held allowing the committee time to study each aspect of the budget, analyzing each line item and reviewing individual city departments. Under the city charter, aldermen have until Aug. 1 to approve the budget, or exactly one month after the fiscal year begins.
“We do know there is a serious drug problem,” agreed Ward 4 Alderman Pamela Brown, who also supported restoring the $70,000 line item for police.
Other amendments were made to the city’s proposed budget on Monday, as the committee eliminated $40,000 from the Economic Development Department’s downtown facade program — leaving the line item empty.
