County approves preliminary levy for 2012
The Stevens County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a preliminary budget of just over $12.3 million for 2012, which includes an 8.91 percent levy increase.
County Coordinator Brian Giese emphasized that most of the proposed increase - about 8.22 percent - comes from larger debt service payments as part of the courthouse remodeling project and projected cuts to County Program Aid from the State of Minnesota.
