The Clinton City Council approved the annual levy Monday night at their regularly scheduled first of two December meetings.
Commissioner of Finance Tom Edmunds indicates this year's rate is a fifth of one percent. He points out that is not much of a change from year-over-year.
Last month, City Treasurer Clint Lichtenwalter told Regional Radio News thanks to the financial health of Warner Hospital and Health Services, the city will be shifting the levied dollars of the hospital. In his decades of public service, Edmunds says this is the best he's ever seen the city-owned hospital financially.
On the City's financial update, Edmunds says both their sales tax revenues are up.
The annual levy received unanimous support from the City Council.
