The – at $122,604,099 – represents a $4.1 million, or 3.5 percent increase over the current $118 million budget.
If adopted as proposed, the budget would result in a 1.62 mill increase in the tax rate, from 18.89 mills to 20.51 mills, an increase of 8.6 percent. So, for every $100,000 of assessed value, $2,051 in local property taxes would be owed, a $162 increase over 2012.
