Public Hearing Regarding City of Butler Proposed Tax Rates

A hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 17, 2021 at the Butler City Hall, 22 W. Ohio at which citizens may be heard on the property tax rates proposed to be set by the City of Butler.  The tax rates are set to produce the revenues which the budget for the fiscal year beginning April 1, 2021, shows to be required from the property tax.  Each tax rate is determined by dividing the amount of gross revenue needed by the current assessed valuation.  (The result is multiplied by 100 so the tax rate will be expressed in cents per $100 valuation.)
