Meeker County budget goes down but levy goes up

Email

LITCHFIELD -- Despite a 1.6 percent decrease in the proposed budget figure, the amount Meeker County will levy is expected to increase 2.3 percent next year.

The preliminary $12.2 million levy was approved this week.

The commissioners cut the county's $25 million budget by about $400,000, said County Administrator Paul Virnig. It's the second year in a row such cuts were made.

Given the workload, Virnig said there is not a lot of room to make additional cuts.
