North Judson Town Board Holds Public Budget Hearing

North Judson Town Board

The North Judson Town Board last week held their first and second readings of an amendment to the 2012 salary ordinance. Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says the amendment allows for the addition of a part-time clerical position in both the clerk-treasurer’s office and the billing office.

Henry explained that the part-time employee would split his or her time between the two offices, but will spend the majority of his or her time in the clerk-treasurer’s office. The employee will be trained in both departments, and will be cross-trained on the billing side to allow the employee to substitute for the billing clerk during vacations. Henry says this employee will be similar to a floating employee between the two departments, but will concentrate on the clerk-treasurer’s side.

The board also held a public hearing before their regular meeting last week on the proposed budget. The meeting presented the budget to the public for any questions or comments, but no questions were raised from the audience. Council President Wendy Hoppe read aloud the categories in the budget as well as the budget total before closing the meeting. Henry explained that the town’s budget total came to $1,054,514, and the board will hold their budget adoption meeting on Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. at the community center.
