6.8 percent levy increase certified for Kandiyohi County


WILLMAR -- With the stipulation that the budget would get another close review in December before final approval, the Kandiyohi County Commissioners certified a $60 million budget and a 6.8 percent levy increase on Tuesday.

"This is not my favorite budget," said Commissioner Richard Falk.

He agreed to vote for the increase with the understanding that the board would "take a hard look at it again in December."
