Tomah City Council members approved the city’s 2018 budget Monday during a special meeting at Tomah city hall. The approved budget will decrease the city’s portion of local property tax bills next year. The city’s mill rate drops to $7.90 in 2018 from $8.51 in 2017. The property levy will remain nearly flat, rising from $5,121,713 in 2017 to $5,153,441 in 2018, an increase of $31,728 or .06 percent. For the owner of a $100,000 home it means a decrease of $62 in city taxes. One change was made to the budget before it was unanimously passed — a transfer of $29,730 from general government to public safety. The amount represents the increase in wages for the Tomah fire chief from $24,915 to $50,467, an amount approved by council members during November’s regular meeting.
