Truth in taxation hearing held on county’s proposed $58.9M budget for 2014


WILLMAR — A truth in taxation hearing held Thursday on Kandiyohi County’s proposed 2014 budget and levy generated no public testimony.

The proposed $58.9 million county budget is about $760,000 more than this year’s budget.

The added expenses are because of a 1.5 percent cost of living increase for employees, higher health insurance costs, an increase in law enforcement pensions and a decrease in some state and federal grants.
