City of Merrill Proposed Tax Levy Zero Increase

Residents of the city of Merrill got some unexpected good news about the proposed tax levy. Finance Director Kathy Unertl reported that city loan that had been paid off as of November 1st was not taken off of the proposed budget. That will remove 240 thousand dollars from the tax levy. Additional cuts were made including engineering costs and street lighting work. In the end a proposed increase of 13.3 percent has been eliminated, and the council will propose a zero tax increase for 2014. The Merrill Common Council will vote on the final budget package next Tuesday night at 7 p.m. You can hear the meeting on WJMT. It will be broadcast live through the courtesy of Agra Industries.
