North Canton City Council is slated to have its first reading on 2013 expenses when it meets inside Council Chambers at 7 p.m. tonight.
According to Cantonrep.com, city council will consider "fee increases, cuts in service, and possibly some layoffs of city employees as the city faces years of growing deficits."
The paper reported that Finance Director Karen Alger presented a proposed 2013 budget at the Jan. 22 council meeting, and that budget showed the city's estimated spending exceeds its revenue by $3.6 million. And $1.4 of that deficit is in the general fund budget.
Council also will recognize visitors before it begins reading the ordinances and resolutions. Council President Jon Snyder had invited the public to share their thoughts at upcoming meetings regarding the addition of overhead lights at the North Canton Little League Fields.
