No tax increase

A draft of Marion’s 2014 budget was agreed upon at Monday’s City Council meeting. A public hearing was set for 4:30 p.m. Aug. 19.

The draft was revised to include no tax increase. The city substituted the cost of a new backhoe and bucket truck for used.

A previous bond issue will be paid off in 2014. Money used to pay bonds in past years will be used in a street sealing program.

Council also approved funds to begin a “welcome to Marion” sign at U.S. 56 and Eisenhower Road. The city will provide labor and concrete.

The city hopes to begin construction as soon as the ground dries.
