Globe — Globe City Council was presented with its audit for the 2012-13 fiscal year at its meeting on Monday, Jan. 13.
Auditor, John Naylor, told mayor and council that the city is doing a good job of controlling its expenditures. He said the state share revenue increased from the previous fiscal year and the city sales tax went up more than $354,000.
According to Naylor, the city payroll decreased more than $36,000. He said the city has been able to control the amount of people it hires with the amount of people retiring. Naylor explained that there are some expenditures that the city was forced to make.
The sewer plant needed a generator, and the city had to rent one before they could buy a new one, and this cost Globe more than $220,000. For the complete article see the 01-22-2014 issue.
