Mount Pleasant residents won’t see much of an increase – if any – in their 2015 tax bill because trustees are proposing a .9 percent levy increase that matches new growth in the village.

The statutorily required public hearing for the budget is at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. A mill rate has not been determined, but the final figure should be close to the $7.13 per $1,000 of assessed value.

The 2015 proposed budget includes spending for an additional police officer and borrowing of $2.5 million for roadwork, a story from The Journal Times reads.

Total spending is going up; from $17.9 million to $18.2 million, the result predominantly of rising personnel costs, Trustee David DeGroot told the newspaper.

The full village board will vote on the budget at their regular meeting Nov. 10 at Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive. Call (262) 664-7800.
