  Budget Crunch 2004: Village in Mid-Year Budget Shortfall, Makes Cuts
At a suddenly-called Special Council Meeting on 28 July 2004, Council moved to use "Bed Tax" receipts for the rest of the year as general funds, eliminating the earmarked Park funding. Council also authorized a $100K general obligation note.
At a special meeting of the Village Council's Finance Committee on 20 July 2004, Clerk-Treasurer Carol Zeman reviewed the shortfall in revenue being faced by the Village at mid-year. Council (and vocal citizens) explored alternatives to a looming cut in police staffing. In additional to numerous cuts itemized by Mrs. Zeman, some road service funds and Council members' donated salary promised to prop up the police budget and maintain two officers on the road at most hours.
