The 2015 budget passed easily with no tax increase at the special-called Harriman City Council meeting Thursday.
Harriman City Councilman J.D. Sampson didn’t make a motion to raise taxes, but he thought it would be a good idea. He said costs will continue to rise, and raising taxes now in addition to debt payoffs in the next year or two will mean more money in the city’s coffers for paving and other needs.
“I aint going to make the motion to raise taxes, but I think as the mayor has said the time is coming,” Sampson said.
