Rockwood City Council has approved the first reading of the city’s proposed fiscal budget for 2008-09.
The budget does not include a property tax increase. It will remain at 85 cents per $100 valuation.
‘Times are hard on people right now,’ Mayor Mike ‘Brillo’ Miller said.
‘I just didn’t feel like it was the proper time to hit the people of Rockwood with a tax increase.’
