The Winneshiek County Emergency Management Commission will hold a public hearing at 6:35 p.m. Wednesday on its proposed 2018-2019 budget. The meeting will be held at Decorah City Hall.
This year's budget authorized $206,000 in spending for emergency government operations and capital equipment. Next year's proposed budget calls for a total of $233,000 in spending. The budget is supported by a Winneshiek County contribution of $102,000 and $86,000 in other revenues. The $45,000 shortfall will be made up by using funds from the agency's existing fund balance.
Wednesday night's budget hearing is open to the public.
