No residents showed up to protest or praise at the public hearing for a proposed raise in the property tax rate on Tuesday at Springfield City Hall.
A tax increase was passed by the council, as no one opposed a raised rate in person or through comments prior to the hearing.
The proposed rate of 14 percent received a first reading. Last year's rate was 13.2 percent.
If the 14 percent rate is passed after a second reading, a property owner will pay $140 per $100,000 of assessed property value.
