Commerce Mayor Dr. John Ballotti says the City Council has decided a tax increase won't be necessary in fiscal year 2014-15, and city employees will see a pay increase.  The mayor says a committee has been formed to study installing fountains in downtown Commerce in the open area next to the new Dr Pepper mural.  Also, the mayor says the current Monroe Street paving project south of Live Oak Street should be complete in mid-September.
