City holds Truth in Taxation meeting; has proposed 9.9 percent levy increase
The city of Bemidji has proposed a levy increase of 9.9 percent for 2008.
During a Truth in Taxation hearing at Bemidji City Hall Monday, Finance Director Ron Eischens explained the levy increase and answered questions from the City Council. One resident attended the hearing, but did not ask questions or address the council.
The City Council will adopt the final budget during its Dec. 17 meeting. It may vote to lower the proposed levy from 9.9 percent, but cannot raise it.
