The new budget for the City of Marinette was approved with little discussion at a meeting of the City’s Common Council last week. The Finance and Insurance Committee reviewed drafts of the document, including proposed capital outlay projects, in November and again directly ahead of the Council meeting where it was unanimously approved. Council also signed off on the $17.2 million 2021 tax levy. The City’s tax rate for 2021 will be slightly higher than last year’s at $23.06 per $1000- that’s a mill rate increase of about $0.56 per $1000 over 2020.
