Topeka city manager Norton Bonaparte last week unveiled a fiscal 2010 budget of $244.5 million that would increase the property tax by 1.85 mills. Annual property taxes on a $100,000 home would go up by $21.28.

The proposed budget relies on attrition to eliminate $1 million in salaried positions. If the City Council approves the f budget as scheduled on Aug. 18, the property tax levy would go to 34.53 mills from the current 32.68 mills.
