The next thing on the agenda was to Set Tax Rate for 2014. The Council discussed how much a 4% raise would be and it would be $13,800 more a year or $9 on a $100,000 home. Brad Stark made a motion to keep the current rate and Parsons second the motion. All were in favor.
The Water and Sewer budget was discussed but the council concluded that it should be tabled until someone from the Big Sandy Water, Inc. could be present. Waterworks director Dave Mcguire was asked to contact BSW and request that they come to the next special meeting.
Stark stated that there needs to be an increase on what BSW pays for the water they purchase. Gloria Johnson made a motion to table the Water and Sewer budget until a Big Sandy Water representative could be present and Stark made a second and all were in favor.
