No one attended Oakwood’s public hearing Monday night on its proposed $3.2 million general-fund budget for 2009.
The Oakwood City Council is set to adopt the budget Monday at its regularly scheduled monthly meeting, set to start at 7 p.m.
The city’s budget year runs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.
Proposed expenses for 2009 are up $348,103 from $2.8 million in the city’s 2008 budget.
The biggest dollar increase is in the city’s police department, which is proposing $1.55 million in expenses, up nearly $250,000 from this year.
The department wants to hire a full-time clerk and start up a K-9 unit.
City Council already has approved its tax rate, 2.48 mills, to support the 2009 budget. The rate is staying the same, with 1 mill equal to $1 for each $1,000 in assessed property value. Property is assessed at 40 percent.
