Spicer prepares for taxation hearing


SPICER -- The Spicer City Council is continuing to whittle down its proposed 2011 budget in preparation for the Dec. 7 truth-in-taxation hearing.

The public hearing begins at 6:30 p.m.

City Administrator Leslie Valiant said the city's expenses will remain close to the 2010 level, but because of an expected $78,000 reduction in state aid, the council is struggling to find ways to balance the budget.
