Water rate hike up for final approval

City Council to consider additional funding requests


The largest funding request in the general fund is for $1 million with $900,717 on personal services.

As a result of the missed deadline, the city lost approximately $810,000 in the tax levy for 2014, which totaled $673,000 in lost revenue.

Mayor Kevin Smith’s administration is reducing the general fund operating balance by $1.8 million this year to $2.5 million by the end of the year.
