Morrison’s town board approved the 2017 budget on Dec. 6, a $5.2 million spending plan that continues to rely heavily on traffic fines for revenue.
The budget calls for general-fund spending of $4 million and for $1.2 million in the utility-fund portion of the budget. Both funds will require contributions from the town’s reserve fund in 2017.
Numerous capital projects are slated for 2017, including $450,000 for:
• A new dispatch station for the police department.
• Two new police vehicles.
