Oro Valley finance officials have given the town council a preview of the fiscal 2011 budget, a spending plan anticipated to come in balanced.

In a presentation on April 7, Finance Director Stacey Lemos presented the budget summary to the council. It includes no employee layoffs or voluntary resignations. It also includes no cost-of-living adjustments, raises or step-pay increases for town employees.

Lemos told the council the budget reflects reduced home building activity, with about 75 new single-family homes anticipated.

The spending plan shows an anticipated $3.7 million decrease in general fund spending, the portion of the budget that pays for most town departments.

The council has numerous budget sessions planned before the scheduled adoption on June 16.
