Rockwood City Council approved its fiscal 2017 budget with no tax increase and enough left over to tackle a couple of badly needed projects.
“I feel very good about it,” said Mayor Mike “Brillo” Miller. “There is no tax increase. We were able to help our employees with our health insurance.”
Miller credits City Administrator Becky Ruppe, finance officer Belinda Puckett, department heads and the past mayor and City Council for helping turn the city’s finances around.
