Janesville's budget woes may be improving
Janesville may receive more in state shared revenue than expected.
City Manager Eric Levitt says State Representative Amy Loudenbeck has offered an amendment to the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee, capping the amount of state shared revenue reductions to communities with populations under $110,000. Levitt says this could mean Janesville gets $400,000 more than expected. He adds reductions in state shared revenue would still be around $735,000.
Janesville is already facing a more than $2 million budget hole next year, and city services are likely to be impacted.
