Preliminary Kandiyohi County, Minn., budget certified


WILLMAR — The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners certified the preliminary 2014 budget at its meeting Tuesday.

The $58.9 million budget is a slight increase over 2013 and includes a net tax levy increase of 1.17 percent.

It's the lowest levy increase in the last seven years.

"It is a balanced budget," said County Administrator Larry Kleindl.

While the overall county net levy will increase, Kleindl said individual county property taxes may actually go down.
