Superior residents have a chance to weigh in on the city's 2017 spending plan.

A public hearing is held during the Superior City Council's meeting at 6:30 p.m. today in Room 201 of the Government Center, 1316 N. 14th St.

Under the proposed budget, the overall tax levy is expected to increase by about $323,000 in 2017 to account for repayment of debt and growth in the city's valuation.

What impact that will have on individual property owners is unknown as several factors affecting the tax rate still haven't been determined, according to Jean Vito, finance director and senior administrator.

"Most of our sources of revenue remain flat," Vito said. Property taxes and state shared revenue account for the vast majority of the city's almost $28.9 million budget.

The budget eliminates one position, vacated by a retirement, and offers a spending plan where revenues match spending with a contingency of about $23,000.
