The 16-million dollar 2013 city budget adopted by Oil City Council on Thursday will include a real estate tax increase of six-tenths of one mill.
That change will translate to about a six dollar tax hike per year for each $10,000 of assessed property value.
The original city budget proposal considered last month contained an increase of one full mill.
The spending plan also contains a $4.70 increase per month for combined water and sewer service.
Council removed from the final budget some $100,000 that was targeted toward the sum needed for the demolition of the Oil City parking ramp and the condemned Brody Block complex.
