For Immediate Release…

Berlin, Md. –  Today, Mayor Zack Tyndall hand-delivered a letter to Town Administrator Jeff Fleetwood stating his formal disapproval of Ordinance 2021-02: Approving the FY22 Budget as Submitted. During Monday night’s Mayor and Council meeting, the Council approved a seven-page amendment to the Mayor’s proposed FY22 budget.

“In October of 2016, I was voted in as a Councilmember. I spent four years fighting to make sure that Berlin was on a better path financially. Four years later, I won Mayor with 69% of the votes because people knew that I did not stand for wasteful spending and was fiscally responsible. I made a promise when I was elected to fight for a better financial future for Berlin. I proposed keeping the tax rate the same as FY21 and presented a balanced budget to the Council that included capital projects and contributions to build up our depleted reserve funds. As elected officials, sometimes we have to make difficult decisions in the best interest of the people we represent. I am asking the Council to take the next few weeks to think about how their decisions impact not only the employees of the Town of Berlin but the people we all represent. I hope that during the next Mayor and Council meeting, my veto is not overridden,” stated Mayor Zack Tyndall.

Mayor Zack Tyndall encourages residents to reach out to each of their elected representatives and ask them to reconsider adopting the Mayor’s proposed FY22 budget.
