DUBLIN (September 13, 2017) – The Dublin City Council held its monthly meeting Tuesday night. On the agenda was adopting the new tax rate, adopting the 2017-2018 city budget, honoring two local citizens and other items.

The council approved setting the tax rate at $1.1250, which raises the tax rate by 1.07 percent. This tax rate increase, according to Dublin mayor David Leatherwood, is due to an appraisal increase. Two council members opposed the increase.

The city council also recognized Nanci Wilson and Cory James for responding to a 911 call and rescued a baby from drowning. The two performed “heroic measures to get a pulse back,” according to city manager Nancy Wooldridge.

The council, after a closed session, voted to make EMS director Aaron Hoodie a full-time employee. All benefits except retirement were waived.

The council also agreed to move next month’s meeting to Oct. 16 in honor of Columbus Day.
