JAMESTOWN – Jamestown’s City Council added funding to the James Prendergast Library’s budget during their council voting session Monday night.
Lawmakers approved their 2020 budget with a 16-cent tax rate decrease.
Officials determined they will save around $150,000 in prescription drug claims for current and retired city employees enrolled in the municipality’s self-insurance health care plan.
The council voted to use $110,000 of the $150,000 savings to decrease taxes.
They used $40,000 of the leftover funding to help the library.
