PORTAGE, MI - The proposed 2013-14 Portage city budget calls for a slight decrease in the average resident's tax bill, but also the discontinuation of some longtime parks and summer entertainment programs. Portage City Manager Maurice Evans presented a brief overview of the proposed city budget blueprint to the Portage City Council Tuesday night, calling it a "conservative approach" that still maintains the core services of police, fire and public works.
