Martinsville City Council has decided to keep water, sewer, and utility rates where they are. Real estate taxes will go up 1.5 percent, the meals tax goes from 6.5 to 7 percent and cigarettes will go up another 10 cents per pack. Council is wrestling with a million dollar budget deficit. Adjusted figures have now reduced that number to $900,000.
