Spicer City Council mulls over LGA cuts made by governor
SPICER -- The city of Spicer will see a 21 percent loss of its local government aid as a result of the state budget unallotment, announced Tuesday by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
How this cutback will affect the city was the main topic of discussion for the Spicer City Council at a meeting Tuesday evening.
For now, the impact is not likely to be major.
Overall, local government aid amounts to about 14 percent of the city's tax levy, said Leslie Valiant, city administrator.
