Ripon Common Council Approves Budget And Tax Levy

Ripon’s Common Council approved the 2018 City Budget and tax levy this week. It includes a $3.2 million levy, which will put the tax levy at $7.97 or about 18 cents more than the current year. City Administrator Lori Rich says the budget didn’t increase that much, but they had an increase in new construction that allowed the city to increase the levy by $138,000. No one spoke about the budget during the Ripon Council’s public hearing Tuesday. Afterwards the budget was approved.
