Absecon city government’s budget remains flat this year

Written by From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong Tuesday, April 01, 2014 12:05 pm

From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong Over this past year, I have tried to communicate how much aware we in city government are of the financial stress all of us are under because of the collapse of the casino industry. We see it in the drop in real estate valuations, the growing local tax delinquencies, the properties we see that are in foreclosure, and the reports of our neighbors of lost jobs and reduced business activity.

City government has responded by reducing the costs of government wherever possible. Over the last year, we moved to a part-time city administrator and reduced a clerical position to part-time also, saving approximately $100,000 a year. We settled responsibly certain litigation against the city which was costing us over $150,000 a year, and we negotiated necessary concessions to our police contract which will save the city additional hundreds of thousands over the next ten years. We do not intend to stop reducing costs, and our proposed 2014 budget reflects that commitment.
