Acrimony high as assembly balances '09 budget

SITKA, ALASKA The '09 budget for the City of Sitka is balanced – after some determined cutting on the part of both the assembly and the city administrator.
The assembly entered the budget process with a deficit in the general fund of about $4-hundred thousand dollars. Over the course of three special meetings in May, the assembly worked to close that gap, but ended up divided over their role in the process.
