Micro citizens will see no tax increase in their current rate of 55 cents per $100 property valuation that includes a 10 cents fire tax but commercial and industrial water and sewer rates will increase in August.
The proposed 2017-18 budget for the town was presented by Mayor Jay Warren during a public hearing at the monthly Micro commissioners meeting on Friday, June 23, at 5 p.m. in town hall.
No citizens attended the hearing and the budget was approved unanimously by town council.
While the budget includes no across-the-board pay increase for town employees some employees will receive a two percent increase, some will receive a three percent increase and some will get an increase of $.25 per hour.
Some increases will be seen for renters in Micro as deposits for water and sewer services have been increased to $200 plus a non-refundable administrative fee of $50 for tenants.
