Golden budget goes to second reading

Town of Golden Council voted in a special open council meeting on March 12 to bring the budget to second reading on March 19.

Chief Financial Officer for the Town of Golden, Lisa Vass, gave a detailed presentation regarding the Five-Year Financial Plan during a special open council meeting on March 12.

Previous complaints about the budget’s public information package had highlighted the lack of detailed information. Several councillors, including Mayor Christina Benty, thanked Vass for covering so much more detail in her presentation.

After Vass spoke, Council voted to continue to second reading of the budget at the regular open council meeting on March 19.

Coun. Hern was the only councillor opposed, stating that more work needed to be done to cut expenditures.
