WORTHINGTON -- During its regular meeting Monday night, the Worthington City Council discussed firefighter pensions and precertified the levy for the 2014 budget. The council approved a 1.3 percent increase in the levy. That number may be lowered, but is an amount not to exceed before the final levy certification in December. Within the same case item, the council approved the Housing and Redevelopment Authority's proposed levy of $99,331, which was about a $14,000 increase from a year ago.

WORTHINGTON -- Wrapping up its second day of budget meetings Wednesday morning, the Worthington City council recommended a 1.3 percent increase in the levy for 2014. The official pre-certification will happen at the Sept. 9 council meeting. That proposed increase, however, is only to cover the increase in debt services for the year. Because of other factors, that doesn't necessarily mean there will be a flat tax increase for every community member.
