The Sweet Springs Board of Aldermen approved the proposed tax levy for the city during its meeting this week.

According to unofficial minutes, the board approved the rate at $1.7769 per $100 of assessed valuation for real and personal property. City Clerk Michelle Fuehring pointed out this rate is slightly less than the rate of $1.786 in 2020. The rate now has to be approved by the Missouri Secretary of State’s Office.

The board also approved a bid of $11,172 from SIMCO Contracting Group- the lower of two bids received- to replace the pump at the Marshall Street Lift Station.

In other business, aldermen approved the hiring of Robert March as park attendant for $400 per month- with the amount for August to be prorated.

Also, the board approved to pay for the city’s liability and property insurance at $40,020- which is up $2,096 from last year.
