City of Spearfish Approves $25.3 Million Budget

On September 18, the Spearfish City Council approved a budget of $25.3 million for 2018, according to the Black Hills Pioneer. The 2018 budget marks a 1.8 percent decrease over the previous year’s budget. However, the 2018 budget calls for a 0.031 increase to the mill levy to cover expenditures.

The city also approved a $1 increase on the sewer base rate, a 50 cent increase on wastewater base rates, and a 50 cent increase on solid waste/garbage. There will not be an increase on water base rates.
