Link to October 29 Fond du Lac Reporter article, "Just 4 show for budget hearing by city council.

Excerpt: Just four people turned out to speak at a public hearing Wednesday night on the proposed 2010 Fond du Lac city budget.

The proposed budget would result in an estimated equalized value property tax rate of $7.402 per thousand of valuation. This is comparable to the 2008 rate of $7.381 and represents an increase of $0.278 per thousand — 3.9 percent higher than 2009.

It is estimated that the amount of city property taxes paid by the owner of an average-valued residential property will increase by about $34 compared to the previous year (from $890.50 in city taxes for 2009 to an estimated $925.25 for 2010).
