Dubuque a �?T74 budget faces deficit by David Fyten the staff writer Dubuque a 1974 budget is under siege from departmental demands and inflation even before its been put into effect. Unanticipated expenses now total almost $500,000 More than the record High $11,856 million budget approved by the City Council in october. They include wage and salary demands additional a a must funding requests and higher than expected Cost increases in fuel supplies. Ifs anyone a guess where the Money will come from. Some of the requests May be trimmed some surplus funds possibly May be pulled together the City managers office already is talking about cutting some services and capital improvement expenditures if inflation gets out of hand. The City cannot turn to Federal Revenue sharing nor can it boost property taxes. Almost All of the City a Revenue sharing Money was plugged into the budget when it was prepared and taxes cannot be raised once the budget is adopted. The four principal bargaining units for City employees have United to demand 50-cent-an-hour across the Board wage hikes paid up life insurance and costly medical benefits. Higher wage demands by City employees Are nothing new a every year the manager s office and bargaining units Haggle past the Day the budget is adopted and often Well into the new budget year. But the workers seem to be a bit More insistent this year saying that the 5.5 wage hike of worse comes to worst i assume Well Hare to Start looking for some services and capital improvements to Cut a asst. City mgr. Frank Murray offered by the City wont even keep up with the Cost of living. Meanwhile hints of worker Militancy have surfaced a the police ticketing protest an effigy Over personnel director Walter Bockes parking stall last week and thinly veiled threats of collective a work actions if the employees remain unsatisfied after Jan. I. But negotiations continue and sources indicate that the employee groups May eventually modify their demands but As it stands now the requests would Cost the City some $200,000 More than has been budgeted for 1974 wages and benefits according to a City Hall staffer. Inflation especially in fuel threatens the budget most. City vehicles Are expected to consume about 215,000 Gallons of gasoline next year the City county and school District were unable to negotiate a joint fuel contract for 1974, so they must Purchase their gasoline on the open Market at going Market prices asst. City manager Frank Murray said Friday that the City now pays 12 cents a gallon More than it did under its 1973 contract which has expired. The Price May go even higher As fuel supplies tighten even More next year so whereas the City figured Only a 5 per cent inflation Factor for gasoline in 1974 when it prepared the budget last summer a allotting about $2,700 More than the $54,000 it paid this year a Murray estimated the City actually will be forced to pay at least $30,000 More. The fuel Oil situation is similar a Murray estimated an additional expenditure of $20,000 to $30,000 More than the $36,000 the City paid in 1973 prices the City must pay for All other supplies Are also threatening to escalate at a rate faster than the City had originally estimated the transit Board of trustees has asked for $165,000 More than the $225,000 budgeted for key line subsidies next year just to keep the buses going at the present level of service if not funded the Board has threatened to slash operations or Stop service altogether next summer the Council receptive to the Board s plea has asked the City manager to find ways to come up with the Money. A buses inflation you name it we re getting it a Murray said. A if worse comes to worst i assume Well just have to Start looking for some services and capital improvements that Well have to Murray said he is tabulating the City is year end financial picture and has not yet been asked by his Boss Gilbert Chavenelle to work on a list of what could be Cut. 14-hour play opens in n.
