Hallowell has a new city budget that’s smaller than last year, but will still have property owners paying more. The city council approved a $2.2 million dollar budget Monday night. It’s 8 percent lower than last year. But the city manager says property taxes will have to go up about 8 percent.It’s thanks, in part, to a $380,000 increase in the city’s share of education costs and a $70,000 decrease in state aid. Taxes on a $100,000 home will go up about $140.
