Spring Valley approves appropriations

Posted by wlpo on July 30, 2010

$360,000 for retirement fund expenditures and $115,000 for elected officials’ salaries are just some of the totals in the new appropriations ordinance for Spring Valley’s current fiscal year.

The city council approved the appropriations during a special meeting Thursday night.

The list of expenditures in the ordinance exceeds revenues in almost every account, and that is typical. An appropriations ordinance is not a budget.

$200,000 has been appropriated for the fire department.  Fire Chief Gene Scheri says the department needs to purchase a backup generator to power the fire station during storms or other power outages.
