Brownton City Council approves 2017 levy

The city of Brownton had just one person show up for its truth-in-taxation hearing Tuesday, Dec. 6.
The city is proposing a 1.8 percent tax increase for 2017, which will generate an additional revenue of about $6,700.
City Clerk Ella Kruse said the city has started payments on the fire department’s newest truck, which was the reason for the increase. Kruse also noted that the levy “has stayed flat over the past quite a few years, and the increase this year is less than 2 percent.”
