The City of Fleming-Neon will see city tax rates remain the same as it moves toward 2015.
At the September meeting of the Fleming-Neon City Council, the council voted unanimously to leave property tax rates, as well as the rates for motor vehicles and watercraft, at $.25 per $100, and to leave tangible rates at $.45 per $100.
In other business, the council voted to proceed with an application for a planning and design grant from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority. Sandy Dunahoo of Nesbitt Engineering presented the application to the council and told them this would be the first step in securing a Community Development Block Grant that will be used to upgrade the city’s water and sewer infrastructure.
Councilman James D. Collins, who is also a member of the Neon Days Committee, told the council that Neon Days will be held this coming weekend and thanked the council for having a new concrete pad poured for a bench, which will be placed in memory of Tom Boggs. Boggs was a member of the Neon Days Committee before his passing.
