Harriman residents can breathe a sigh of relief for now.
No property tax increase has come up so far during discussions of this fiscal year’s budget.
Residents shouldn’t expect any fancy new projects either, however.
“This is a lean budget,” said Councilman Lonnie Wright.
“It is the leanest I’ve had to work with,” agreed Treasurer Charles Kerley.
The budget also uses up the fund balance. Kerley said reserve funds are what is keeping the city in the black.
