The Glasgow City Council met last night with three items on the agenda.  The first item was the tax rate for 2012.  On second reading, the council approved a tax rate of $.176 per $100 of assessed value on Real Property and $.179 per $100 of assessed value on Personal Property.  If taxes are paid by November 30th of this year, a 2% discount will be credited; and, if paid by December 31 of this year, taxpayers of the city will be credited a 1% discount on their bill.  Otherwise, taxes are due by January 31, 2013 with penalties of up to 6% if late.

 

The second item on the agenda was the increase in rates from the Glasgow Water Company.  The minimum balance for customers in the city of Glasgow will increase by $1.38 for water usage to $8.40, and, the minimum balance for sewer service will increase by $2.75 to $11.15.   Due to federal mandates by the EPA, the Glasgow Water Company is being forced to increase it’s rates by a minimal amount to fund rehabilitation projects with the sewer and water infrastructure.

 

Thirdly, the council approved an amendment to the Standard Operating Procedures Manual of the Glasgow Police Department.  Glasgow Police Chief, Guy Turcotte, says these changes were made to continue accreditation.
