On Tuesday, the City Council will hold a public hearing for its proposed fiscal 2001 budget.
The $270-million budget plan provides funds for police, fire, recreation and city administrative services, and includes city employees' salaries.
Also included in next year's budget are funds for nine new library positions, which include two full-time librarians to help patrons with questions regarding the Internet.
The proposed budget is $20 million more than the 2000 budget.
Final decision on the budget is scheduled for Sept. 18.
