Hearing on Cumberland budget slated June 1

May 31, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Mayor Daniel J. McKee is proposing a $79.1 million budget for fiscal 2011, which reflects an increase over the current $76.2 fiscal year budget, according to information released by the mayor's office last week.
Included in the overall budget is McKee's proposed level-funded school budget, which is $1 million less than what the School Department had requested in funding for next year. Residents will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed spending plan at a public hearing hosted by the Town Council's Finance Committee on Wednesday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
