MAYVILLE, N.D. - Mayville residents accepted a mill increase to be used for its public library.

The mill increase was approved with 69.8 percent of the vote. In complete but unofficial results, 264 voted in yes, while 114 voted no.

The city measure, which needed 60 percent of the vote to pass, would mean residents would pay an extra 22 cents per $1,000 of their home value. Those who own a home worth $100,000 would see a yearly increase of $22 on their city tax bill.

The money would be used to offset increasing costs, such as to purchase books, according to previous Herald reporting. The last time the library had a mill increase was in 1988.
