The Washington City Council met last night and received information from the Washington Chamber of Commerce Tourism Committee by Director Tim Coffey.
He gave the Council the most recent copy of the Iowa Travel Guide, updated city maps as well as a book compiled by the Tourism Committee members which shows the different activities of Washington County.
The Council also heard a lengthy presentation from City Administrator Brent Hinson regarding the fiscal year 2013 budget. He shared an overview with the goal of having no negative funds by the end of June 2013.
Hinson shared his proposals to reach that goal including tax levies. The Council was impressed with the time spent on Hinson’s proposal and they will be working on the budget at future meetings.
