Change for Clay Center homeowners

Clay Center City Council approves 21 percent decrease in mill levy

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

After several years of higher levy rates, with the 2016-17 levy being set at .95 per $100 assessed valuation, the Clay Center City Council voted to decrease the 2017-18 levy to .75, a drop of 21 percent during its Sept. 19 meeting.

Mayor L. Wayne Johnson said, “This levy decrease comes from several years building the restricted funds budget and not using it...We’ve also taken a hard line on a fiscal conservative approach to planning and spending.”

Sutton Council trims mill levy by just over 20 percent

BY TORY DUNCAN

Sutton City Council members took the final steps during their September meeting Monday night at city hall, to endorse a reduction in the City of Sutton’s mill levy taken from property owners in the city limits, by trimming the levy by just over 20 percent.

The levy, which had been maxed out at 1.03, as to what the City of Sutton could ask for, will see a drop to approximately 0.83. That reduction marks the first levy change in the mill levy since the 2009- 10 budget year.

“The council’s reasoning for endorsing the budget that allows this reduction comes from wearing the hat … of leading a fiscally responsible government,” said City Administrator Jeff Hofaker.
