Council unanimously approves 2014 budget....

The Jamestown City Council unanimously approved a 33.5-million dollar budget that raises taxes by 1.9-percent.  Lawmakers voted 8-to-0 to adopt the spending plan... which increases the full value tax rate by 41-cents per $1,000.  That's 14-cents lower than Mayor Sam Teresi had proposed in his executive budget plan.  The cuts come from six areas... increased savings on borrowing... $20,000 cuts each to the contingency line, and Judgements and Claims... and, $5,000 in savings from the Police and Fire Departments.  Finance Committee Chairman Tony Dolce says they were also able to find another $8,800 in savings in the Public Works Dept.
