Budget continued from page 5
Human resources lost another $10,000, leaving only $91,000 to cover the $300000 requested by various community health care, child care and other programs. The proposed $65,000 for a city anti-rape program also lost $15,000, which would have covered the salary of a new policewoman for the program.
The fate of the budget is not yet finalized, however, as the budget which has passed depends on the voters' willingness to approve the 1.7 mill tax increase which will appear on the June School ballot, along with a 1.3 mill school tax increase. Both the Democrats and Republicans are backing the city tax increase, but the HRP has come out in opposition to it. In a s statement released on Monday, May 13, the the HRP urged voters to turn down the millage as a protest against the city's spending priorities.
