Every municipality in the state is held accountable to budgets and balancing finances this time of year. The City of Algoma has found success in keeping their books in order with a new accounting system. City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says the process is paying dividends to the community.
The city received a clean bill of health from auditors for the first time in many years, according to Wiswell. Algoma purchased some capital equipment including two pick-up trucks the past year along with a new fire truck the year before. Wiswell expects the city budget for 2017 to be formally approved in the early November meeting.
