PLYMOUTH â€“ After a stormy process of putting it together, the 2011 budget for the city of Plymouth had a very quiet public hearing last night.
After a month of consternation over raises and paid holidays the Plymouth Common Council held its public hearing on the coming yearâ€™s budget and if initial public reaction is any indication, the Council appears to have arrived at a budget thatâ€™s at least acceptable to the public.
No one spoke for or against the budget when the floor was opened for public comment.
