The Clinton City Council Monday night approved their annual levy and the City Treasurer says things are looking very positive right now.
Clint Lichtenwalter indicates the levy is decreasing by just over two-percent decrease, and the EAV has slightly jumped as well.
Lichtenwalter points out, the levy being a lower rate is a direct result of the city being diligent in funding their pensions, something many communities cannot claim.
Elsewhere in the Clinton budget, Lichtenwalter says sales tax in the community is stagnant. He says while there hasn't been growth, it is a good sign there hasn't been a decline.
Lichtenwalter also points out revenue from the City's gaming ordinance draws in roughly $8-thousand a month, which he additionally notes, has done more to help replace other lost revenues than create new revenue.
