The budget will result in a tax increase of 3.9 percent, and will need to raise $69.4 million taxes, up from $66.8 million last year. The result will be an increase in the municipal portion of the tax bill of $118 per quarter on an average house assessed at $133,000, or from $2,090 per quarter last year to about $2,208 this year.
