LOGAN – Logan’s Municipal Council Tuesday night voted unanimously to adopt a $129 million budget for fiscal 2013-14 and no one appeared at a public hearing to protest. The city’s fiscal manager, Richard Anderson, said there is no tax increase in the budget.
“Our tax rate is actually decreasing because property values are going up slightly,” Anderson told the council. “If someone’s property taxes are going up in the City of Logan, it is not because of the City of Logan. It could be from a school district or county.
“It could also be possibly from a revaluation of one portion of the town, their values going down, another going up. Those are the only factors affecting it. It is not the City of Logan.”
Anderson said although there is no increase this year in the property tax, it looks like there will be a small increase next year.
