If you are a ratepayer in Mitchell, don't expect the LUD portion of your taxes to go up this year.

Brian Esau is Chair of the Local Urban District committee of Mitchell. He says it is the goal of their committee to hold the line on taxes. Even though expenses keep rising, Esau says so does assessment and the number of homes in the community, which allows them to leave the mill rate unchanged.

2019 03 walnut(Walnut Avenue in Mitchell expected to be resurfaced this year.)Esau says the total cost of their projects planned for 2019 is $339,000. One project will see them resurface Walnut Avenue from Third Street to Centre Street. They also plan to close in the ditch along Walnut and build a concrete sidewalk from Third Street to Cerntre Street. Esau says this will give the school children a place to walk, rather than being on the road.

Also in 2019, they plan to complete their ditch bottom project along Reichenbach Road as well as construct a 'Welcome To Mitchell' sign. Esau admits this last project has taken longer than expected.

"Between design and getting all the right of ways from the highway department, it just took a little longer than we had anticipated," explains Esau.

The sign will go up on the east side of the community. Esau says it should be erected on the north side of Highway 52, about half a mile east of Mitchell.

Esau says their 2019 financial plan must still be approved by Hanover council.
