Mayfield budget carries tax increase

MAYFIELD – Village officials passed the 2014-15 budget earlier this month, which will increase the tax levy 2.34 percent.

The $611,000 budget will boost the tax levy from $228,353 to $233,707, according to Mayor Jamie Ward.

The tax rate in the 2014-15 budget is $3.91 per $1,000 of assessed property value, an increase from $3.71.

Ward said no salaries were increased, with cuts made to health care costs and to the staff for the summer recreation program, which was reduced by eight positions.
