GREAT FALLS – Town of Great Falls employees will get a 4 percent raise if the proposed $1,097,672 budget gains second-reading approval. The proposed budget gained unanimous approval at the May 16 meeting.
Councilman Glenn Smith said the budget contains no tax increase.
Instead, a $1 monthly garbage fee increase will be added.
“We chose not to raise taxes, but garbage fees will go up $1 a month. It has been eight years since garbage fees were adjusted,” Smith said.
