The Menahga Truth in Taxation hearing didn't attract many people Monday night.

A couple of residents sat in the audience as the council approved a $10,000 levy increase - from $322,364 in 2009 to $332,364 in 2010.


But one councilwoman opposed the 3.1 percent increase that was first proposed in September.

Maxine Norman said she would like to see a 0 percent increase, citing the current economic conditions as a reason good enough to not raise taxes.
