With only two dissenting votes, the Missoula City Council passed the new budget for the coming fiscal year. Dick Haines and Adam Hertz, the two councilors with more conservative views, voted against raising property taxes by 3.28%, providing city workers with generous insurance benefits, and paying for a lobbyist to represent the city at the next legislative session.

The total budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1st, is $119.5 million dollars. People with a home valued at $225,000 will be paying another $23 per year in taxes.
