Stewart sets preliminary levy increase at 3% for 2018 budget

Without much discussion, the Stewart City Council on Monday night approved a preliminary 2018 budget with a 3 percent levy increase.
Mayor Jason Peirce said the proposed 2018 budget was balanced, as far as the items that are supported by the general levy.
In 2017, the city levied $404,564. With the proposed 3 percent levy increase, the city would levy $416,701 in 2018, an increase of $12,137 in revenue.
