Annually, the City Council meets to for the purpose of hearing comments related to the proposed use of all funds for the following year. The strategy going forward is to incrementally reduce the mil levy as permissible while continuing to provide quality public service. The 2024 plan is for a 5.05% reduction in the mil levy and to ask the citizens to renew the sales tax on the ballot in November in order to further reduce the tax levy in 2025.
In an attempt to make things easier for our citizens, we've created an "at a glance" page of Governing Body decisions. This will be updated after each meeting and will can be found on the City website.

Our crew will be out distributing water surveys. New federal regulations require city staff to inventory all of the water lines in town. Please help us out by returning these to City Hall or dropping them off in the overnight drop box at City Hall. If we don't get one, we will be out ringing doorbells!
