Every city government will have some tough choices to make when it comes to budgets this next year, and Goshen Mayor Jeremy Stutsman is giving some insight into the shortfall his city will be facing.

At a city council meeting earlier this week Stutsman was immediately able to throw out a number; $1.5 million. That is the amount he anticipates the city will have to make up when it’s all said and done. According to The Goshen News he says they’ve been working with an accounting firm to get a handle on their numbers and the firm suggests that if Goshen spends their full budget; the impact will be about $5 million across all sources.

However, Stutsman says they rarely do spend the full budget so he estimates $1.5 million. He also noted that in some cases, like gas tax lines, effects won’t be known for a couple years. It’s also important to note that nobody is 100% certain what budget numbers will look like next year.

  1. Maybe if the city would stop wasting money on poorly advised projects we wouldn’t have a problem. The Main Street fiasco is a $1 million. The skating rink will be around $7 million. The $25 million bypass that dumps traffic into the high school. Raises for the mayor. Paying police to congregate at Shanklin Park. City park’s budget of $4 million, but nothing is taken care of. On and on and on….
