|County Board keeps levy hike under 8 percent|
Members of the public attending last week’s county taxation information meeting mostly had issues with their individual land valuation circumstances; and none were opposed to the fact that county spending is increasing by almost eight percent in 2019. Final action by the Board last week adopted a levy increase for 2019 of 7.88 percent (minus the $24,000 levy increase for the Chisago Lakes Lake Improvement District which stands alone. Those properties will see a 7.9 percent increase.)
