MORRIS – The Morris City Council voted Tuesday to freeze taxes for 2014, using an increase in state aid to help offset debt payments for a summer construction project and save for major equipment purchases. 


The council also voted to increase water and sewer utility rates 5 percent, beginning on Jan. 1, 2014.

This year, the city received an additional $153,500 in Local Government Aid (LGA) from the state of Minnesota, about a 7.2 percent increase over 2013.
