Manitowoc: City, County Take Different Approaches to Budget Development:

Link to September 27 Herald Times Reporter article, "Manitowoc County, city budgets diverge. Mayor cites reality vs. ideology; county exec asks if city's calculators have malfunctioned".

Excerpt: In the same night last week it became apparent layoffs at the county level were imminent, the city of Manitowoc approved wage increases for its police union and nonunion city employees.

The contrasting events left some taxpayers wondering how the budgets of two governmental entities headquartered within blocks of one another could be on such divergent financial paths.
