Proposed levy would increase taxes 9.3 percent

by Leslie Ehrenberg

The proposed budget and levy for 2019 was adopted by the Appleton City Council at their September 19 meeting. This preliminarily sets the property tax increase for residents at an increase of 9.3 percent.

Items calling for the increase are a new backhoe for the street department (budgeted for $85,000), a new squad car for the police department (budgeted at $60,000), an increase in employee hours in the city office.

During City Clerk Roman Fidler’s annual review, the council stated they would like to see him covering the city window less. They were asking him to partition off his desk and increase the part-time office position to a full-time one.

Discussion from the council centered on if the backhoe purchase was necessary. The current backhoe is aging quite a bit. Being budgeted for was a used backhoe, however, the council questioned how many times a year the backhoe was used and if the city could just rent one when needed.
