Council tables JSDC budget request

Published 08/04/2009, The Jamestown Sun

After voting down a motion Monday to approve the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp.’s 2010 budget as originally requested, the City Council voted 4-1 to table the item for more study. Councilwoman Kelani Parisien removed the item from the consent agenda saying approval of a reduced JSDC budget was premature. The council had voted 3-2 to cut the budgeted amount from $302,000 to $280,000 in its Finance and Legal Committee meeting two weeks ago. Parisien, who had voted with Mayor Clarice Liechty and Councilman Pat Nygaard to reduce the budget increase by 7 percent at that meeting, said she wanted to table the item to work with the JSDC on the budget. It’s possible, she said, that portions could be cut without hurting marketing and recruiting plans.
