Dayton Council Gives First-Reading Nod to Budget

Dayton's Town Council gave first-reading approval to the budget and the town's mill levy for the year that starts on July 1.

Action on both ordinances came during the council meeting Wednesday night. Mayor Norm Anderson said the budget for next year is just under $1.5 million and includes a street-lighting project that's expected to cost just over $600,000.

The council retained the existing mill levy of 8 mills, which is expected to generate about $48,000. Two more readings are required on each of the ordinances before they become final.

In other action Wednesday, the council approved the town's liquor ordinance on second reading, leaving one reading to go before that becomes final. The council in separate actions approved a 24-hour beer permit on Sept. 16 for the Gallery on Main Street and a 24-hour beer permit on June 11 for the Mountain Inn Bar to hold a fundraiser in Scott Park.

The council also approved closing of Third Street around the town's post office next month for a festival. The alley will remain open to allow access to the post office.

The council also thanked retiring Sheriff Dave Hofmeier for his service to the town during his tenure, and acknowledged two retiring junior council members, Austin Miller and Taylor Holliday.
