Taxes up 5.5 percent in Cicero

— Corl’s tentative budget would use $465,908 of the town’s fund balance, down from $900,000 in 2012.

Corl said he doubted there would be changes to this budget as presented.

“This will provide a sound groundwork so we can stay under the state tax cap for the 2014 budget,” he said. “We’ve had so many meetings and worked so hard on this. I think it’s pretty solid.”

There will be a public hearing at the Oct. 10 meeting to discuss a local law to exceed the 2 percent property tax cap for the budget. The public hearing on the budget itself has not yet been set.

So...let's take a look at Mr. Corl's budget and what he has to say about it.

"Reduce the cost of government". Funny, a 4.7% increase in spending doesn't quite make it as a reduction.

Jim then goes on to moan about "raiding" the fund balance. Why is it when he takes over $400,000 out of the fund balance it isn't "raiding"?

Overall, just a brilliant job! He paid someone $8,000 to come up with this budget which basically consists of, let's raise spending and taxes. Show some guts and cut some of the bloat (cough, cough...police department).
