– The Yelm City Council will hold a Public Hearing to consider the 2018 Budget
Highlights include: hiring two more police officers, adding a development review engineer to streamline business and construction permits, building new sidewalks to keep kids safe, and investing more resources to care for our parks and aging infrastructure. The budget also funds reserve accounts that were recently developed by Mayor Foster and the Finance Committee to more transparently account for funds, save for a ‘rainy day,’ and replace necessary equipment (like 7 new police cars in 2018) to better serve our citizens. The 2018 proposed budget is balanced, increases services to the public, and is sustainable with the first multi-year budget forecast to foster long-term planning.
