The city of St. James has budgeted for a total increase in general fund revenue for 2014 of $544,647 and a total general fund expenditures increase of $546,647, the city noted during their 2014 Tax Levy public hearing Tuesday night. That $2,000 deficit would come out of the city's reserves, said City Manager Joe McCabe. “But, that's only if we spend everything, which we usually don't.” For the rest of the story, including more details on the 2014 city budget, please see the full article in today's print edition of the St. James Plaindealer.
