Star Valley’s budget features huge reserve fund

Council likes budget format that puts off decisions on major water, road projects

The Star Valley Town Council Tuesday expressed satisfaction with a budget for fiscal 2012-13 that includes money to run and upgrade its new water company and a big reserve fund to fund still unspecified projects. The town remains in far better shape than most, thanks to state formulas that have rewarded it for population growth and revenue coming in from traffic ticket cameras at both ends of town. The town each year brings in between $300,000 and $400,000 more than it needs for ongoing operations, giving it money for special projects.
