Lincoln Public Raises Concerns about Proposed Biennial Budget

LINCOLN, Neb.-- With the deadline to finalize the City of Lincoln's proposed 2014-2016 Biennial Budget approaching, council members held a pair of public hearings Monday.

Those who showed up voiced their concerns in front of the city council. The most talked about issue in the $339 million budget was the proposal to raise landfill use and garbage pick-up rates.

Other debates included the proposal of hiring two new police officers at a cost of $170,000.

While the hearings had low attendance, District 2 Councilman Jon Camp says it could be because there have already been a number of community meetings regarding the proposed budget.

The new fiscal year begins Sept.1.
