Police and fire pensions

Taxpayers are responsible for paying defined-benefit pension plans even if investments on the pension funds don't make enough money. The city broke out the property tax amount for the police and fire pensions separately for the first time last year in order to be more transparent, said Brandon Kauffman, city finance director. 

Tax rate: $0.03466 per $100 taxable value 

A plane carrying four people crashed near the Crete Municipal Airport on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, a Cessna P210 took off from the airport and experienced engine troubles. The plane attempted to return to the airport but crashed into a corn field approximately 1/4 of a mile south of the airport.

The identities and conditions of the individuals on board the plane are unknown at this time, and an FAA investigation is ongoing.
