Bozeman City Commissioners review 2014 fiscal year budget recommendations
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Bozeman City Commissioners moved to continue reviewing the budget proposals.

The preliminary budget shows an annual tax increase of almost $89 for the typical Bozeman resident.

Expenditures for the general fund preliminarily total around $26.9 million, the majority of that going to the police and fire departments.

Commissioners went back and forth over new full-time positions in Parks and Recreation, city management, and the Bozeman Fire Department.

Bozeman residents could see a $7.39 monthly tax increase in services such as water, sewer and street assessments.

The commission hopes to finalize the budget by July 1.
