N-B Numbers: Town of Markle adopts 2014 budget

During the Markle Town Council's regular meeting Wednesday evening, the council approved upon final hearing the 2014 budget. There was no discussion offered by council members, as the budget has been discussed during meetings prior. The budget does include a 2 percent increase for town employees.

The budget, seen below, will now go to the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance for approval.

Also during Wednesday's meeting, council members offered a counterbid to the board of the Huntington City-Township Public Library's purchase of the Markle library branch downtown. The town, however, wants the building as the town hall, particularly because the current town hall and lot are not compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act, and it would cost more than $1 million to renovate it to compliance.
