No one spoke Tuesday at the hearing on the proposed West Allis budget for 2012.
The proposed budget calls for a 1.53 percent property tax levy increase and a rate of $9.76 per $1,000 of assessed value, which is up 15 cents per $1,000 from this year. So the owner of a home assessed at $100,000 in both years would pay $15 more for city services.
Day-to-day spending would actually be slightly down with the proposed operating budget of $55.6 million, 0.74 percent or $414,895 less than this year.
But increases elsewhere push total spending up 1.15 percent to a proposed $118.2 million.
There would be no layoffs but the staff would be reduced by four people through attrition.
