Tax cuts, unions put '09 budget in the red?

SITKA, ALASKA Despite a substantial municipal revenue sharing package from the state, Sitka’s budget for next year is starting out in the hole.
The Sitka Assembly heard a first reading of the 2009 municipal budget at a special meeting Thursday (4-24-08) in Harrigan Centennial Hall.
The featured speaker of the evening was city finance director Dave Wolff, who gave a blow-by-blow of the anticipated general fund deficit, which stands now at just over $400-thousand dollars.
