Sunrise short of funds for projects

March 10, 2008 08:40AM

After a decrease in state property tax last year, and in light of declining tax revenue related to the slow housing market, the city of Sunrise has found itself short of funds required for many of its projects. The city has stopped giving new contracts for renovations, and is now reviewing around 50 parks, buildings and other projects, including a proposed $28 million City Hall and plaza. Deputy Mayor Roger Wishner believes some such projects were never in the city’s budget.
