Monroeville Council has passed a 2014 budget that will increase municipal real estate taxes.

Council members voted 7-0 Tuesday in favor of a $29.4 million budget that includes a 1.57 millage increase, bringing the total to 4 mills, interim municipal manager Tim Little said.

The owner of a home valued at $100,000 will pay $157 a year more in real estate taxes. Mr. Little said the average home in Monroeville is assessed at about $136,000.

The additional tax collected could be used for capital improvements, to maintain staffing and to contribute to an employee retirement fund, Mr. Little said.

New council elected in November had tabled action on the budget until Tuesday.
