A public hearing for the proposed 2015 Rising Sun budget will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, said Rising Sun Clerk-treasurer Rae Gipson.

Final adoption by council is slated for 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2. Both meetings precede the monthly city council meetings and will be in the city building at 200 N. Walnut St.

As advertised, the 2015 budget calls for a total of $4,464,175, including a general fund of $2,301,140. Specific fund amounts include $495,696 in motor vehicle highway; $1,932 in continuing education; $215,000 in park and recreation; $5,782 in cumulative capital improvement.

Also, $57,500 in cumulative capital development; $200,000 in economic development; $372,625 in redevelopment, general; $105,000 in sanitation; and $700,000 in home rule.

The proposed rate, based on an assessed valuation of $85 million, is $0.4859 per $100 assessed valuation, said Gipson.

Once a 2015 budget is adopted by council, it will go on for state review and may be cut.

But the overall math passing percentage is close to the state average, and higher than the school’s 2013 math passing percentage.
