Dunkerton City Council sets date to approve final budget

DUNKERTON (KWWL) -

City officials in Dunkerton debated their budget yet again Monday.

The city is currently trying to cut its general budget in order to make up for overspending.

The fire department is taking a large hit in budget cuts. Fire department representatives say they can't cut anymore from their budget, because the fire crews need the money to invest in new equipment such as trucks and pagers.

Earlier in the year, Dunkerton also considered completely cutting its police department.

No changes were made to the budget at Monday's meeting. Final approval of the new budget will take place on March 12 at 7 p.m.
