GOV, Broadview budget over six months late [BV]

Broadview is one of my favorite Proviso communities. The community has businesses in the storefronts and the police seem like they're actively working against crime. However, this doesn't sound good.

Suburban Life (Debrah Bonn):
It's been almost six months since the village's fiscal year began May 1, and the board still hasn't passed a budget. The last financial data available is the audit from the 2002-03 fiscal year, which shows that for the year the village spent $3 million more than it received in revenues. The 2004 audit is expected to be presented at the Nov. 7 board meeting, and it hasn't been determined when a 2005 audit might be available. Residents are vocal at board meetings about their distrust and disbelief: They want answers. They want open budget meetings. They want numbers.
