SHEBOYGAN FALLS, WI (WHBL) - City of Sheboygan Falls residents will pay more towards city services next year. The city’s common council approved the 2014 budget Tuesday evening following no comments from the public.
The $5.45 million budget is up 2.23-percent from this year, which includes a 4.1-percent increase in the tax levy to over $3.03 million. Mayor Randy Meyer said this was due to factors such as cuts in shared revenues and making sure their self funded health insurance had adequate funding. Meyer added the budget does include funding for the city's Main Street program and the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation.
The tax rate will increase 17 cents to $5.25 per thousand assessed value. The budget does not include any payments towards the upcoming renovations to the city municipal building. That will begin in 2015.
