GROSSE POINTE PARK — Despite a projected loss of another $178,000 in property tax revenues, the Park expects to break even for the 2011-12 fiscal year, City Manager Dale Krajniak told the City Council at a May 23 meeting.

State-shared revenue is also down again this year, by about $77,000. At its height in 2003, Krajniak said, the Park received $1.5 million in state-shared revenue. That has fallen about 45 percent, to $880,000 now, he said.

However, Krajniak said, cash flows are up, and health care, wages and workers’ compensation expenses are down.
