    Cold hard cash.

    The Keller City Council has approved its new budget.

    Property taxes will stay the same and city employees will receive a raise.

    They will get a 1 percent merit increase, according to the Star-Telegram, and a onetime $1,500 stipend.

    The new $70.5 million budget includes $1.2 million for a fully-equipped fire truck.
