By Sue GoldenFrederick County ReportCouncilor rip Chewning was up-beat when discussing the reasurer’sReport at the last Middletown towncouncil meeting. He said the townhad an “interesting couple o rstmonths o the year.” Middletownhas a net loss o $79,286. CouncilorChewning remained positive in spiteo the loss, since there were severallarge, one time payments made, in-cluding payments or the VirginiaMunicipal League insurance, twobond payments, and a large expen-diture or pvc pipe. Te town stillhas over $900,000 remaining in itsbank accounts and in certicates o deposit. Tat money can be used tomake up the dierence in any shortall. As Councilor Chewning con-cluded his report, he was optimistic,noting “hopeully, things will startlooking up.”Optimism aside, Middletown hasa real, and signicant problem: itsbudget is “unsustainable” accordingto the Virginia Resource Authority,the same entity that loaned Middle-town money to put in the problem-atic sewage treatment plant. Accord-ing to the VRA, Middletown mustcut spending, raise more money,or both. Another option discussedperiodically is olding Middletownback into Frederick County. Teproblem with the County option, i the County agreed to take Middle-town back, is that the loan or thesewage treatment plant must be re-paid by Middletown.Te current council made some very dicult choices during the lastbudget negotiations. Te position o town manager was eliminated. Bud-gets were scrutinized to nd every savings possible. Department headswere quizzed on their requests orunds. Employees received pay in-creases, but not without a ght.However, town expenses are notstatic. Te aging inrastructure o thetown, rom water lines to repairs totown hall, continue to bedevil any at-tempt to get spending under control.Te sewage treatment plant contin-ues to thwart the best attempts tomake the plant work according toplans. All o the departments appearto be over budget.Income or the town also is debat-able. Whether the town water ex-pense is “revenue neutral” is contin-uously debated. Te sewage systemcertainly does not pay or itsel. Tegrand hope o the Dollar Generalstore saving the day is only a “hope”;the Dollar General paid or a $30business license this year, like every other business in town. Next yearthe business ee will be based on apercentage o this year’s revenue, sokeep on shopping. One o the twonew stores to open in town already closed. Te meals and lodging tax isgood income, but only i there aremeals and lodging to tax.In a series o upcoming articles,this reporter will attempt to inves-tigate the various options open tothe town. Is the answer “roo tops,”new businesses, cutting the budgeturther, or raising taxes and ees?Most likely, it will be a combinationthereo. But decisions or the townshould not be made in a vacuum,and some o the answers are surpris-ing. In the meantime, citizens needto understand that the budget is un-sustainable as is, and stay involved asthe council is aced with very toughdecisions.
