The discussion was around the final 2013 levy payable in 2014 and was set at five million nine hundred three thousand three hundred twelve dollars according to Mayor Dale Adams  said it comes in below what the preliminary levy was set at. Mayor Adams said it is a balancing act the entire city staff and council have to perform every year.
