Baldwin City Council to consider 2015 budget that hikes mill levy 3.609 mills

The Baldwin City Council will consider on Monday a 2015 budget that would increase the city’s property tax levy to 27.490 mills, or a 3.609 mill increase from that of 2013. That increase is not the result of a budget that buys a lot of nice new things — none of the facility projects scheduled for 2015 in the five-year capital improvement plan the council approved in February will go forward next year — but is the result of a shrinking tax base and inflation, Baldwin City financial director Brad Smith said.
