Stevens County looks at 4.56 tax increase for 2014
MORRIS, Minn. -- After learning that Stevens County will see another decrease in state aid for 2014, the Stevens County Board of Commissioners is considering a 4.56 percent tax levy increase for the next fiscal year.
The total proposed levy for 2014 is about $6.64 million, about $290,000 more than the levy for 2013. About two percent of that increase is to make up for a $128,000 reduction in county program aid, County Coordinator Brian Giese told the board on Tuesday.
