CENTERVILLE — The Centerville City Council tonight at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall during a special meeting will have a public hearing then consider approving the fiscal year 2014 budget.

The budget year begins July 1 and ends June 30, 2014.

The estimated total tax levy rate per $1,000 valuation on regular property is $17.48820. The estimated tax levy rate per $1,000 valuation on agricultural land is $3.00375.

Total revenue for FY 2014 is estimated at $7,900,392. Total expenditures and transfers out for FY 2014 are estimated at $8,028,735.

Other items on the agenda:

• A representative with Hall Engineering Company of Centerville wants to discuss issues with the Sludge Processing Facility Improvements project.

• Chariton Valley Planning & Development in Centerville has sent the city a proposal to manage the Davis-Bacon compliance requirements for the Sludge Processing Facility Improvements project. In an email sent by Nichole Moore, CVP&D executive director, the cost to the city to monitor six contractors involved with the project would be $30,400 billed out at $85 per hour per staff member.

"If any major non-compliance issues are found, then we will bill at the same hourly rate and this will be addition to the amount if needed," writes Moore in the email.
