“There’s no changes involved,” said Emerson City Manager Kevin McBurnett. “We will continue with 2 mills and no property tax increase.”
McBurnett said a second reading and a public hearing will be held on Monday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. with a final adoption scheduled after the public hearing.
Since 1984, the city had rolled the millage rate back to zero until 2012. Last July, Emerson adopted the 2 mill increase after an outcry from residents over a proposed rate of 3.6 mills.
