Silver Lake Council approves 5.9 percent preliminary levy increase

Department heads in the City of Silver Lake sharpened their pencils a bit before Monday’s city council meeting.
The city was anticipating a preliminary tax levy increase of just over 7 percent as of a workshop two weeks ago. At its regular meeting Sept. 16, the council approved a preliminary levy of $549,903, a $30,653 or 5.90 percent increase from the 2019 levy.
The city is projecting $913,213 in revenues and expenses in 2020, $47,256 or 5.46 percent over this year.
