Page 9

heads must reduce costs to make a balanced budget. He also discussed gaming expenses and available funds for capital expenses. Commissioner Densberger cautioned about the healthcare expenses. Between salaries, healthcare and pensions costs the City has an increase in expenses of $900,000.00 to $1,000,000.00 per year. This year there was a pension break and the total increase was only $600,000.00. He does not know how the City can support the increased salaries with additional revenues each year.
Commissioner Jeffers asked that we discuss the bid process because the low bidder is not always the lowest cost. He discussed the acreage of the property to be sold along Altorfer Lane and that there were four parties that were interested in the property. He believes the agreement is a good deal for the City and the City is receiving what they wanted in the agreement.
Motion by Commissioner Jeffers, seconded by Commissioner Joos; Mr. Mayor, I move you that we adjourn until Tuesday evening, April 30, 2013 at 6:00 P.M.

Yeas: Commissioners Decker, Densberger, Jeffers, Joos and Mayor Mingus.
