CITY TAX RATE UNCHANGED FOR NEXT YEAR, NEW BUDGET APPROVED

CITY TAX RATE UNCHANGED FOR NEXT YEAR, NEW BUDGET APPROVED

At the Sept. 16 City Council meeting, Council members voted unanimously to maintain the city’s property tax rate at $0.3559 per $100 valuation. With the exception of a less-than-one-cent, voter-approved tax increase to build two new fire stations (approved in a 2005 bond election), the city’s tax rate has remained unchanged for almost two decades.

The City Council also approved the fiscal year 2015 city budget. The $39.5 million budget takes effect when the city’s fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. View the fiscal year 2015 budget as presented to the City Council here.
