Mayor Izzo Presents 2019 Rome Budget Proposal
Rome Mayor Jacqueline Izzo presented her 2019 budget proposal to the Rome Common Council on Wednesday night.
The spending plan is nearly $700,000 below the state mandated two-percent tax cap and has no property tax increase.
Izzo says although there is no tax increase, the city is maintaining a high level of services and there are no cuts or layoffs.
Izzo also says they're projecting a one-percent increase is sales tax revenue next year.
The Council must pass the budget by the end of October.
