St. Bernard budget hearing tonight

ST. BERNARD - A public hearing to discuss this Hamilton County city's 2005 budget will begin at 8 p.m. tonight in council chambers,

The budget will likely include the restoration of a 2-mill property tax increase that was rolled back years earlier.

Financial constraints have caused city officials here to consider reinstating the property tax increase, which would generate about $330,000 per year.

Good economic times led to a rollback of the tax, originally intended for one year, in 1990.

Now officials want to bring it back for the 2005 budget.

The meeting will be held in council chambers at the city's administration building, 110 Washington Ave.

The Aug. 14 dinner is open to the public, but a $30 dinner reservation per person is required.
