Commissioners approve preliminary levy increase of 4.56 percent
MORRIS, Minn. -- The Stevens County Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a preliminary tax levy increase of 4.56 percent, about $290,000, for 2014.
The preliminary 2014 budget includes about $13.5 million in expenditures, a two percent increase over 2013 and $6.56 million in revenues, a .36 percent decrease from 2013.
This left about a $7.36 million gap to be made up with a combination of state aid, tax levy and a spend down of reserves.
