After a series of failed motions the grand forks city council approved a 2014 operating budget last night.   Councilman terry bjerke made numerous motions in an attempt to further reduce spending.   Bjerke asked the council to cut the overall budget by three-point-18 mills to counter the tax increase homeowners will see through increased property valuations.  the motion failed due to a lack of a second.

Council president hal gershman says the city has done its part to hold down spending.

The budget does not include a mill levy bump.   the council gave preliminary approval to the spending plan on a six-to-one vote.  final approval is expected in two weeks.
