Keaton also said earlier if the levies didn’t pass the city would have to make some decisions, which could include cuts, Keaton said.
“Council will have to decide if they want to put property tax levies on the November ballot, or seek additional funding through changes to our existing income tax and/or make major cuts,” she said. “Additional cutbacks will not be necessary if the levies pass.”
The levy request for road and bridge work would have cost the owner of a $100,000 home $134.75 a year. It would bring in $474,447 a year for five years.
The 0.96-mill parks and recreation levy, on the ballot for a second time, would have cost the owner of a $100,000 home $33.60 a year. If approved, it would generate $118,304 a year for the city for five years and would pay for maintaining parks, equipment and add new recreational opportunities, according to the city.
