New budget proposed in Wauconda


A $14.5 million budget has been proposed for the 2014 fiscal year in Wauconda, but whether it's adopted depends on the mayor-elect and trustees-elect who take office in May. Projected expenditures dropped about 4 percent from the current budget, village officials said during a discussion on the spending plan Tuesday night. Mayor Mark Knigge asked if any more cuts are possible, focusing on overtime costs and the police department's dispatch system. Mayor-elect Frank Bart will take office in May, along with new trustee Teri Burke. Incumbent trustees John Barbini and Lincoln Knight won re-election. The village's fiscal year ends April 30. A new budget must be approved by July 31, officials said.
