Leaving itself some wiggle room, the Williston City Council voted Tuesday night 4-1 to set the FY 2013-2014 millage at 6.0708 mills.
Council President Jason Cason was the lone dissenter, telling his peers before the vote, “I do not want to entertain a rate higher than last year.”
But the other four councilmen, led by Charles Goodman, believed the council should afford itself a small cushion during the final days of budget preparation.
That’s because once a tentative millage rate is set, a government body can lower it but it cannot increase it.
