HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg City Council is set to vote next week on the city's fiscal budget and it will not include a property tax increase. Monday afternoon, council members adopted a resolution levying ad valorem taxes for the next fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

That resolution does not include a millage increase.

Council members resolved some issues that surfaced last week that would have affected taxes...included was a potential half-mil increase or $190,000 dollars that would have been added to the city's general fund. That was in addition to a $380,000 increase because of a one mil reduction in the police and fire retirement fund.

"You have three parts on your bill...you've got school, you've got county, you've got city...the city millage is exactly the same, that number is the same," said Kim Bradley, council president.

The resolution did include a slight millage increase for the school district. The council is set to vote on the budget next Tuesday.

Also Monday, the council adopted a resolution declaring a state of emergency due to tropical storm Isaac.
