Looking Ahead in Wayne
September 6, 2017
City Council Meetings
Regular City Council meetings are at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month in city hall at 306 Pearl Streets. We would love to see you there!
The Wayne Community Activity Center will be monitoring hours of activity through the end of the year to see if changes need to be made to open hours. Make sure you are always scanning your membership card at the front desk so we have accurate data moving forward with discussions on possible adjustments to these open hours.
Victor Park Trail Closure
The south trail head at Victor Park is closed for the next month or so. This is due to a Logan Creek bank stabilization project that the City has under construction. The purpose of this is to help stabilize the creek bank by the trail underpass. This project will also see a few new concrete panels on the trail as some have cracked and started sinking. There are signs posted showing this closure. Please respect the contractors and your own safety and stay off this trail stretch until they are finished.
The City Council passed at its Sept. 5th meeting the budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year (or FY 2018). The tax levy (or rate) stayed the same from last year at 0.449995. This means that if your property is valued at $100,000 you would pay $450.00 to the City next year in property taxes. This includes the general fund (police, admin, etc.) as well as debt service (i.e. streets) and the municipal airport. (Your tax bill as a resident of the City of Wayne will obviously be more than this as the other taxing entities, besides the City, include Wayne County, Wayne Community Schools, Northeast Community College, Natural Resource District (NRD), Educational Service Unit #1 (ESU), Rural Fire District and the Wayne County Ag Society (County Fair). )
