despite creased spending in city govern nent says Francis C DeSart city auditor The City Council adopted a 1966 city budget of Monday night following a public learing which no objectors wera present Next years has been estimated at 27561 mills by DeSart Last year council adopted a budget of that re sulted in a tax levy of 28574 mills Of last years amount 46032 was to be raised by taxa ion Of the 1966budget DeSart estimates that must be aised through the tax levy Although the amount to ba aised both this year and next ear through taxation is nearly he same the millage rate is down 1013 mills This decrease s attributed to an assessment ncrease of approximately 87837 says DeSart The city has provided in reased facilities and added ervices in recent years but the ncrease each year in assessed aluations has saved most tax payers money DeSart said Ha cited the new airport terminal now under construction and park expansions as examples of in creased spending The 1964 assessed property aluation in Mason City was 553363338 If this had not in creased this year the millaga rate of 1966 would have in creased onetenth of a mill in tead of decreasing 1013 mill DeSart figured The
