No Tax Increase in Bradford for Third Straight Year

Bradford City Council last night approved on first reading the millage ordinance, which keeps the millage rate at 16 and means no tax increase.

Mayor Tom Riel says although he had hoped to be able to lower taxes, keeping the rate steady is quite an accomplishment.

City Clerk John Peterson gives much of the credit for the no-tax-increase budget to the department heads being realistic in their requests and keeping a close watch on their budgets during the year.

Among the other topics covered are the demolition of more plighted properties, bid openings for fire station renovations and the 2014 wage ordinance.
