The Kingston City Council has approved its budget for the fiscal year that begins on Friday. The budget approved this month leaves tax rates where they are and provides 2-percent raises for city employees.
The Council passed the budget 4-2 on second reading following a public hearing, during which no comments were made.
The property tax rate will remain at $1.45 per $100 of assessed value.
The Kingston’s water department’s budget was also approved and does not call for any increases.
