MORRIS, Minn. At a budget work session on Thursday, Morris City Manager Blaine Hill presented the City Council with a revised city budget that would not increase the city's tax levy for 2012.


The decision was made, Hill said, because of the Market Value Homestead Credit issue. Because of a state change in the way property taxes are reimbursed and calculated, many believe that local taxes will be increasing this year, regardless of what decisions local taxing authorities make.
