New Proposal Brought Forward by Duluth Council for Budget Cuts

Budget Discussions Will Continue Monday

DULUTH, Minn. – A new plan is emerging from two Duluth city councilors about what do about a $2.1 million budget cut.

Last night, councilors Noah Hobbs and Elissa Hansen, made a motion to supply about $180,000 back to the fire and police departments, which were facing some cuts.

Under their proposal, a tax levy would be increased by another .7 percent. It’s already going up another 4 percent under Mayor Emily Larson’s plan.

Budget discussions are expected to continue at Monday’s council meeting.
