Tonight's the night that the Ogden City Council will take its first crack at the Caldwell Administration's proposed 2012-13 Fiscal Year budget. Read the respective council packets for tonight's budget oriented council meeting agendas here and  here.

Here's the overall budget story in a nutshell:
Our General Fund revenue is projected to increase 1.2% to $51,212,375 from the FY2012 council adopted budget. Ogden City Corporation’s overall budget is projected to increase 8.37%to $141,484,250. This is due primarily to budgeting the CIP projects and the miscellaneous grants fund. The Redevelopment Agency is projected to increase 2.94% to $21,470,225. The projected budget for the Municipal Building Authority will decrease 0.07% to $644,550.Combining the totals from Ogden City Corporation, the Redevelopment Agency, and the Municipal Building Authority, we recommend a total municipal budget of $163,599,025 which is a 7.59% increase over the previous year.

I see that yet another RDA area is proposed. This time on the west side of Wall Avenue. Has anyone ever studies to find out if these area are working. The decreased tax money to the local school district is a major factor in the quality of ogden schools. Prove that the RDAs are obtaining the desired results before going down that path again. Prove they are getting the promised results.
