City of Sheboygan budget showdown looms. Mayor reiterates vow to veto garbage fee. (Sheboygan Press, 8/1/2012)
City Council members voted 12-4 against a proposal to repeal the $5 monthly garbage fee, which is projected to bring in $869,000 in revenue in 2013. The margin is considered "veto-proof." The Council also voted 12-4 to recommend the budget as proposed by Chief Administrative Officer Jim Amodeo. (Van Akkeran isn't the only official with whom Amodeo has disagreed.)
