The Ridgway Town Council adopted its fiscal year 2016 budget at its regular meeting last Wednesday.
The meeting also tackled general issues that had been discussed in previous sessions and would have an impact on the town, such as the only ordinance of the year, a land use issue and two items of policy.
With the adoption of the budget, the related resolutions were also approved, including appropriating sums of money to various town funds, the property tax levy of 8.651 mills, the 2016 strategic plan, 2016 Capital Projects, and the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan and Ten Year Capital Improvement Plan.
Continuing on the subject of money, the council also heard an audit report from Peter Blair of Blair and Associates, Certified Public Accountants and Consultants.
