SYLVANIA - At their Tuesday night meeting, Sylvania City Council voted to set the proposed 2010 millage rate at 5 mills, which is no change from the 2009 rate.
A public hearing will be held Oct. 5 at which time the final millage rate will be set for the year.
Other business included the approval of proclaiming October as the official Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Also, "failure to appear" fines were revised at Tuesday's meeting. The fine of $200 or threedays in jail was set for a failure to appear warrant, when someone does not show up for court and a warrant is issued for arrest. And a fine for $100 or three days in jail was designated for failure to appear suspension, when someone does not take care of a ticket by the due date, leading to suspension of license.
