Gainesville City Manager Kip Padgett has recommended no property tax increases as part of a $30.76 million spending plan for the 2016 fiscal year, which begins July 1. Facing rising health care expenses and only slight increases in tax revenue, the general fund budget is $400,000 greater than the current fiscal year. The City Council expressed satisfaction with the proposed budget, unveiled during a work session Thursday morning, and will vote on whether to formally adopt it in May.
