Despite an increase of 3.73 percent in the 2019 City of Kiel budget, the impact on the local levy for municipal purposes will be a net decrease on this year's tax bill.
The budget adopted November 20, by the Kiel City Council, calls for expenditures of $3,086,665, or an increase of $111,930 from last year.
A combination of increasing property valuation, slight increases in state transportation aid, the retirement of a tax incremental district helped the city provide taxpayers with a slight drop in the municipal tax rate.
In Calumet County, property taxpayers will pay $5.26 per $1,000 of valuation, down about 10 cents from last year. In Manitowoc County, the rate per $1,000 drops about eight cents to $5.28.
