SHERIDAN — The second reading of the fiscal year 2013-2014 budget for the town of Dayton passed with no changes at the Dayton Town Council meeting Monday, town Clerk Linda Lofgren said.
General fund income is projected to be $615,550 and expenses are estimated to be $710,250 for maintenance and general operations. Lofgren said expenses are always higher than revenues because they budget high and can pull money from reserves if needed.
Council members also presented the May Yard of the Month Award to Shawn and Patricia Schumacher at 1 Black Mountain Drive.
Started in 1987 as a way to encourage Dayton residents to maintain their yards, the Yard of the Month is awarded once per month by a committee of last year’s award recipients. Criteria include landscaping, general maintenance and appearance of flowers and grass. The location of the property and maintenance difficulty are also considered. Winners receive a sign to put in their yard, a yard ornament, town of Dayton pins and a letter signed by Town Council members.
