The city sought the increase as a way of boosting revenue in the face of state cuts to the local government fund, Compton has said.
The hike will generate about $2.2 million each year to be used for general municipal operations, including police, repairing existing streets, maintenance, repair and new equipment.
Centerville has lost nearly $3 million annually for the past five years due to an 89 percent reduction in state funding, according to the city.
It also estimates losses of an additional $1 million in 2017.
Since state cuts took effect in 2011, Centerville has eliminated or reduced the hours and pay of 14 city positions, delayed road resurfacing and increased the cost of medical insurance for city employees, in addition to using local businesses to help generate revenue.
Economic development – such as Cornerstone – helps raise city revenue, but Centerville has cut about 15 percent in recent years, Compton has said.
