CARTHAGE After hearing no comments at the public hearing about the 2013-14 tentative budget Monday night, the village Board of Trustees set a special meeting to adopt the spending plan.
Board members will meet at 4:15 p.m. April 29 in the village municipal building, 120 S. Mechanic St. The budget year will begin June 1.
The $5,656,209 tentative spending plan is up $468,700 from this years $5,187,509 budget. However, the tax levy would not rise significantly and the tax rate would remain at $8.25 per $1,000 of assessed property value, as it has been for the past three years. The tentative tax levy is $1,043,570, which is $878 more than this years $1,042,692 levy.
