Hamburg City Council adopted Jan. 23 a $7.1 million budget resolution for fiscal year 2023.

Of the projected expenses outlined in the resolution, $1,324,675 were general fund expenditures and $5,796,476 were in funds dedicated to water and sewer services, ambulance services, and courts and construction.

The salary schedule adopted alongside the budget allows for five part-time patrol officers at $14 an hour in addition to five full-time salaried patrol officers, a sergeant, the police chief and police clerk. Officers were also allocated $600 annually for uniforms.
