East Peoria approves 2014-2015 budget
“We have spent a lot of money on roads, something thought on building new roads or in different areas than historical street maintenance. So we’ve done well and we’ll continue to stretch those dollars.
The city’s budget also turned down $1.5 million in staffing and item requests from various departments. City administrators say the move aims to save money amid rising salary, pension and healthcare costs.
