Morris residents can expect a tax decrease in their city's 2009 budget.

The Morris City Council voted Tuesday to approve a $1.1 million tax levy, which represents a 5.5 percent decrease from 2007. The council also approved a preliminary 2009 operating and debt service budget of $8.1 million. Expenditures are expected to be about $142,000 less than proposed 2009 revenues.
