The latest proposed budget will likely be adopted by lawmakers tonight in the city of Watertown.

The operating funds will be over $59.6 million, with $42.7 million of that coming from the general fund.

The spending plan comes with an increase of about 3.6 percent on property taxes for city residents. And the budget will also include upped fees for services like ice time at the arena and use of the fields at the fairgrounds.

Councilman Mark Walczyk, who missed a majority of the budget discussions due to a committement to the military reserves, is back and will be on hand to vote this evening. Late last week, Councilman Walczyk told us he was still reviewing the overall plan but has concerns about raising taxes above the property tax cap.
