A public hearing was held to consider the proposed 2014-2015 City of Murfreesboro Budget at the June 5th meeting of the Murfreesboro City Council. Only three speakers chose to voice their thoughts on the document, ranging from grievances with red light ticket cameras, to city borrowing, to employee pay amendments. You can hear the citizens’ concerns below...
The budget, with few amendments from the council, was then passed, along with the Appropriations Ordinance, Tax Rate Ordinance, and Certified Tax Rate of 1.2015, upon first reading. It will require two more votes to become official. You can read the full copy of the proposed budget for yourself on the front page of the city’s website, MurfreesboroTN.gov.
Other business to come before council included the scheduling of several other public hearings to consider multiple rezonings along Agri-Park Drive. Those hearings have been slated for July 10th.
