Wellman residents will see an increase to the debt service levy when the next fiscal year begins July 1st. It’s increasing from $0.79 to $2.30 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. City Administrator Nick Pacha explains this will shift the debt the water fund was paying back to the general tax levy. The increase will bring the $30,000 that’s being collected this year up to $87,000 for Fiscal Year 2015. The loans that are being paid back were used for infrastructure improvements within the city.
