November 30, 2012

With the first consolidated election between the city and county in the books and new City Council members elected by the people, County Clerk-Recorder Kammi Foote met with the Bishop City Council Monday to discuss how election day went.

November 30, 2012

It looks like the City of Bishop will enter the 2013-2014 fiscal year with a sound, flexible blueprint it can use to guide government spending and revenue.

the 2013-14 fiscal year is projected to be $9,525,113. That is down from $10,692,150 for 2012-13 and up from the 2011-12 budget of $8,769,175.
