GLOVERSVILLE- The city Common Council will hold a work session Tuesday at City Hall that will feature a public hearing regarding Mayor Dayton King's proposed 2013 budget.

The proposed budget includes no tax increases or staff cuts for the year and has to be adopted by Dec. 10.

However, King said after the public hearing Tuesday, the council will most likely look to adopt the budget at its meeting Nov. 27.

Fourth Ward Councilwoman Ellen Anadio said this morning there is no intention for the council to pass the budget after the public hearing.

"I think we have done a great job working on this budget for the coming year," King said.

He also said the public hearing is designed so residents can make comments on what they think about the budget or possible changes they haven't considered.

The Gloversville Common Council will conduct a work session at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The meeting will include a public hearing regarding Mayor Dayton King's

proposed budget for 2013.

As an example, King said he has received some calls from residents telling him taxes should increase so more staff can be hired to complete their work.

Other items to be discussed at the meeting include:

"This will just allow Fage to continue with their plans to expand the factory out there because Johnstown and Gloversville both have to approve it," King said.

Anadio said there is currently a fee for animal redemption, but the state requires it to be passed by the board.

She said the fee to recover a lost animal is $10 for the first offense, $20 for the second and $30 for the third.

The money from the fee goes toward feeding and caring for the animal while it is at the shelter, Anadio said.

A commissioner of deeds has the authority to sign off on documents and is similar to a notary, King said.
