City mill rate likely to drop next year

July 21, 2004

Although it will need final approval at an upcoming council meeting, Tonganoxie's mill levy likely will be set at 33.756.

And that's a slight decrease from last year's 33.969 mill rate.

This year, taxes on a house valued at $150,000 are $585.97. Taxes at the same value for 2005 would be $582.29.

But values aren't holding steady in Leavenworth County, so it's likely that taxpayers could see a slight increase in their taxes used to finance city services next year.
