Becker County is expected Tuesday to set the property tax levy for the 2017 Budget. Minnesota counties are required by State Law to establish a proposed tax levy on or before September 30, 2016 for the year 2017 and set the date for the public meeting to discuss the budget. The final levy for 2017 cannot exceed this proposed levy.
The proposed tax levy for 2017 is established as follows:
Total Proposed Maximum Levy: $19,969,263
This represents a 4.16% increase.
It is recognized that this is not the final levy, and the final levy will be established before December 31, 2016 along with the County's entire 2017 budget. The proposed 2017 budget, all funds, is $61,096,434.
The public meeting (Budget Hearing) to discuss the 2017 budget will be December 8, 2016 at 6:01 p.m. in the Board Room. Questions concerning the proposed 2017 budget may be directed to County Administrator Jack Ingstad at 218-846-7201 or email Jack at email@example.com
