City Council sets 2023 Mill Rates with slight reduction in taxes

An unexpected $179,213 increase in the City’s municipal revenue sharing grant has led to a slight deduction in previously approved 2023 property taxes. The previous taxation rate for base taxes and mill rates was approved to be a 5.99% increase in December of 2022.        

During the May 8th City Council Meeting, Administration presented Council with several scenarios for disbursement of the additional municipal revenue sharing funds received by the City.      

Following the discussion, Council approved the reduction of the tax rate from 5.99% to 5.34% for 2023, while ensuring the availability of $100,000 to cover costs to fix signal and light poles on Territorial Drive and an additional $25,000 toward the cost of a backup generator for the airport runway. Purchase of the backup generator is pending approval of the City’s $25,000 CAP (Community Airport Partnership) grant application. Should the application be unsuccessful, the designated $25,000 will be deferred to the budget 2024.   

The 2023 Mill Rates and commercial taxation rates were approved by Council at a Special Council Meeting on May 9th  based on the reduced property tax rate of 5.34%. A comparison between 2022 and 2023 Mill Rates per class is below.
