<div id="storytext"><span>Thursday&rsquo;s Marshfield Board of Aldermen meeting will be preceded by a public hearing at 6 p.m. to discuss the proposed 2010 city budget, which includes water and sewer rate increases.<BR /><BR />City Administrator Dan McMillan said he is factoring all revenues as &ldquo;flat,&rdquo; and was still calculating water and sewer rate hikes at press time.</span><br /><br /> <div style="float:right;"> <center></center><br clear="all" /> <script src="/js/FancyZoom.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="/js/FancyZoomHTML.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

</div><span>Preliminary budget documents reveal McMillan proposed rate increases of 28 percent for sewer and 12 percent for water.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;We&rsquo;re trying to be diligent on our spending and buying what we need,&rdquo; McMillan said.<BR /><BR />Last year, the city estimated water revenues of $933,400 and sewer revenues of $1,264,900.<BR /><BR />For 2010, with the proposed rate increases, the city anticipates revenues of $1,158,400 for water and $1,183,819 for sewer.</span><br /><br /> <div id="instory"><script type="text/javascript"> <!-aCampaigns = new Array(); aCampaigns[1675] = 100; aAds = new Array(); nAdsysTime = new Date().getTime()/1000; document.usePlayer = 1; if ((nAdsysTime >= 1260511200) && (nAdsysTime <= 1261375199)) { aAd = new Array('+instory', '212702-1260542114', 'swf'); aAd[3] = '250'; aAd[4] = '250'; aAd[5] = new Array(); aAd[5][0] = 'http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coxhealth.com%2Fbody.cfm%3Fid%3D3494'; aAd[5][1] = 'http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coxhealth.com%2Fbody.cfm%3Fid%3D1492'; aAd[5][2] = 'http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coxhealth.com%2Fhomepage.cfm%3Fid%3D1'; aAd[6] = '%2Binstory'; aAd[7] = 10; aAd[8] = 0; aAd[9] = 1675; aAd[10] = 0; aAd[11] = 0; aAds[aAds.length] = aAd; } adsys_displayAd('http://adsys.townnews.com', 'marshfieldmail.com', aAds, aCampaigns); // --> </script></div> <span>City employees are not projected to receive pay raises, although with retirement and life insurance premium increases,

the city anticipates spending $1,945,311 for salaries and benefits, up $34,000 compared to last year.<BR /><BR />Overall, city officials anticipate revenues of $5.96 million and disbursements of $5.4 million.<BR /><BR />Other agenda items<BR /><BR />&bull; The Marshfield Walgreens, which opened last October on Spur Drive, will apply for a liquor license at the Thursday, Dec. 10, Board of Aldermen meeting. If approved, Walgreens will join the Wal-Mart Supercenter and Summer Fresh Supermarket as Marshfield retailers selling packaged alcoholic beverages.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board also will discuss a proposal by Riverview Estates subdivision developer to give the city one vacant lot in exchange for the city completing a lift station in the housing development.<BR /><BR />Last month, the board told builder Ken Harden that City Attorney David &ldquo;Chuck&rdquo; Replogle would investigate whether the city could accept the lot, or if the city could assess fees on the lots to help pay for the lift station, estimated to cost $30,000.<BR /><BR />&bull; An agenda item postponed at the last meeting is again on the table &ndash; an update on demolishing the old swimming pool in the city park. Alderwoman Barbara Carroll has argued against leaving one wall standing, while other board members have said the west wall should remain to protect the creek bed. The pool was filled with dirt more than 25 years ago.<BR /><BR />&bull; The city also expects to hear from resident Tammy Marlin, who asked the city last month to delay a decision to raze an old livestock building in the Webster County Fairgrounds. The board granted Marlin two weeks to gather estimates to repair the building and begin securing funds for the project.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board will hear an update on the first phase of engineering for a Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) enhancement grant for trails and sidewalks.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board will discuss a proposal to sell White Oak property lots. Last summer, the board agreed to sell some of the vacant lots to pay for a 1/2-acre addition to Hidden Waters Nature Park.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board will award a lease-purchase bid to buy a fire department ladder truck.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board will discuss disposing of bicycles stored in the police department&rsquo;s evidence locker.<BR /><BR />&bull; The board will consider an amended annexation application from Don Vance Ford.<BR /><BR />Meeting time<BR /><BR />The Marshfield Board of Aldermen will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, at City Hall.
