Council Discusses Closing Budget
By Angela Hatton
Murray, KY – The Murray City Council continues to discuss methods of closing a 1.1 million dollar shortfall. A payroll tax has been the main revenue option, but some council members are hesitant to impose the tax, saying it would overburden low-income residents. Another proposal would focus on cutting operating costs by twenty percent. The Murray Ledger and Times reports the city has staunched the deficit so far by borrowing from its reserve fund.
