Modest levy increase for 2013 reviewed at Kandiyohi County, Minn.'s, truth in taxation hearing


WILLMAR —  Kandiyohi County’s proposed $58.2 million budget for 2013, which is less than it was for the two previous years, was given a public review Tuesday during the truth in taxation hearing.

The budget includes a gross levy increase of $30.1 million, which is the lowest increase in at least two decades.

That is offset by a $1.48 million payment from the county aid program, for a net levy of $28.6 million. But that county aid is less than what it was in the past.
