MERIDEN — The City Council is hosting a public hearing tonight to hear feedback from residents on City Manager Tim Coon’s $197.2 million bugdet.
The hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Lincoln Middle School, 164 Centennial Ave.
Coon’s proposal would mean an increase of $1.7 million, or .88 percent, over the current fiscal year. Coon said a tax increase of .08 mill, from 41.04 to 41.12, is needed to fund the budget. A mill equals $1 in property tax per every $1,000 of a property's taxable value.
The owner of a home assessed at $106,000, the median value, would pay an additional $9 in real estate taxes next year.
The proposal calls for $100.9 million in education spending and $96.3 million for general government.
