City Council OKs 2009 preliminary levies
WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council Tuesday night approved a preliminary 2009 general fund property tax levy of $3,525,325, up about 4.2 percent from the 2008 levy.
But a council member raised an objection to the Willmar Housing and Redevelopment Authority's separate preliminary 2009 levy of $189,908, up 33.9 percent from the 2008 levy.
Council member Ron Christianson asked why the HRA requested an increase of almost 34 percent.
