continued Marzola said the board is already looking ahead to plan for its 2015 budget, and that members have a couple concerns.
“First, retirement – my gut tells me it won’t be as significant an increase as last year,” he said. “Hopefully it’ll be similar to this year, especially [considering] how the market is right now. But God only knows what the tax levy cap will be next year. It could be 1.66 percent again – I doubt it – it could be as low as 1.4 or 1.5 percent. We’ll be looking at ways to combine or consolidate services and continue to look at our departments from a staffing perspective. That’s where we are this year and overall I think it’s extremely positive.”
