The East Providence Budget Commission took its first look on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 4, at the proposed $154 million spending plan for next fiscal year that does not hike taxes, according to the East Providence Post.

 And the reaction?

“We’re viewing the budget as a work in progress, and it is a work in progress,” said Diane Brennan, the commission chairperson, in the Post story. We still have a ways to go.”

A second hearing on the budget is scheduled for Oct. 18 at 5 pm in Town Hall. It will follow the next Budget Commission meeting. See the story in the Post on the first hearing.

Lean budgets, freeze tax rates and doing without will be the norm for the day with these groups. People are going to have to learn to do with less from government to keep spending under control. The hayride is over.
