(Carli Luca / News Now Warsaw)

A special meeting on Monday by the Warsaw Common Council made a slight adjustment to the 2020 budget.

$3,500 was cut out of the police budget, money that was intended to go towards the lease of a motorcycle. The vote for the cut edged by, 4-3.

This came after the city received a notice regarding the 2020 budget from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance, who look over property tax assessments and local government budgets and make sure they keep up with Indiana law.

Mayor Joe Thallemer said this cut needed to happen before the notice’s deadline of December 2nd.
