No sooner had the city proposed a 125-dollar per year “contractor” license fee, that it has pulled it from next year’s budget.
The city had hoped to raise $25,000 a year with the fee.

Ronald Wendt, the Alexander man convicted of Vehicular Manslaughter and Aggravated Vehicular Homicide - will be back in Genesee County Court for "re-sentencing," today.
Wendt is currently serving a 2 ½ to 7 year sentence in state prison.
Ronald Wendt was convicted back in September of DWI and Vehicular Manslaughter after a crash in Darien in August of 2009. Wendt pulled in front of an oncoming car as he was turning into a bar parking lot. 18-year-old Katie Stanley of Dansville was killed in that crash.
The new Republican majority in the New York State Senate has passed its first major legislation.
The bill is a constitutional amendment in New York, and if passed, it would set a 2-percent cap on all state spending.
The one hitch is that a constitutional amendment must be passed by two separate, elected state legislatures. So if this bill makes it past the Assembly and Governor this year, it would still need to be passed again in 2013.
The bill was introduced by State Senator Michael Ranzenhofer, who represents Genesee County.
