City wrapping up budget sessions

By The Mercury

The city commission will have its final budget work session Tuesday.

The work session starts at 5 p.m. at City Hall.

The proposed 2015 city budget is about $134.4 million with a mill levy of 44.712 mills, an increase of $3.6 million and 1.288 mills from 2014.

A mill is $1 in tax for every $1,000 in assessed, taxable property value.

Considering the average home valuation has increased 2.3 percent, a homeowner paying $499.38 for a $100,000 home in 2014 would pay $526.01 for a $102,300 home in 2015.

Other budget discussions will include proposed parks and recreation fee changes and budget items that could be funded through economic development funds to reduce the mill levy.

At the start of the work session, students from a Kansas State University Community Planning and Design class will make a presentation on what Aggieville could look like in the future.

In addition to their presentations, they will have material from their projects in the foyer.
