Milford's aldermen are expected to vote on the city and school budget May 14 (tonight) at Milford City Hall.
The board will vote and set a new mill rate at its meeting starting at 7 p.m.
Other dates are held in reserve in case it takes the board more than one meeting to reach a consensus.
Prior to the aldermen’s review, the Board of Finance had supported a 2015-16 budget that would raise taxes by $144 on the typical house with a market value of $311,070.
Altogether, the city and school budget proposals total $202.18 million under the finance board plan, which is an increase of $3.8 million over the current year, or a 1.94% increase.
Under the plan, the current mill rate would go from 27.22 mills to 27.88 mills, which is an increase of .66 mills, or a 2.4% mill increase.
The aldermen have been reviewing the proposal for several weeks, meeting with individual departments to ask questions in preparation for their May vote.
