The Hays City Commission will meet for a regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at city hall. 

There will be a public hearing for the city's proposed 2018 budget, which does not call for any increases to taxes or service fees.

City departments were asked to trim costs where possible in order for the city to offer employee raises next year.

Following the public hearing, the commission likely will vote on whether to adopt the budget.
