Logan’s budget: Better than most others for 2010

With so much talk of the recessing economy having caused problems, Logan City appears to have escaped the downturn relatively unscathed. That’s the message that will be presented Tuesday night at the Logan Municipal Council meeting when Finance Director Rich Anderson introduces the 2010 budget to city lawmakers. Anderson said the budget is down from $118 million last year to $105 million for FY2010, but all things considered, Logan will have weathered the recession thus far better than many other communities. No jobs will be cut, Anderson said, but there will be no money in the budget for capital projects. Also, the health care plans for employees have been changed to a high-deductible plan with no premiums. Previously, city employees had $1,500 deductible on health coverage along with 80/20 payments. The new health deductible for city employees will be $5,000.
