University Heights finances are on track

Upon reading Councilman Sims’ letter in the online version of the Heights Observer, I would like to reply that if he refers back to the Council Minutes of Sept. 8, 2009, his Finance Committee report stated: “…There was a brief update from the Finance Director, in which he reported that the City is on track with revenue collection and is holding the line on expenditures. He does not foresee any real budgetary problems…”

If that is true, how can Mr. Sims state that our city needs to reverse deficits and negative financial trends? University Heights has been and is fiscally responsible and is fortunate not to have the problems of some surrounding cities.

Adele H. Zucker, Vice Mayor
City of University Heights
