Flood greatly influences Waverly budget


WAVERLY (KWWL) -- A controversial property tax increase will not be part of Waverly's city budget.

Some questioned raising property taxes so soon after flooding devastated parts of the city last June.

On Monday, the Waverly City Council was able to trim enough to actually lower property taxes.

City Administrator Dick Crayne says flood recovery projects drastically increased the size of Waverly's budget this year.
