Jenkins' levy less than predicted
Jenkins’ certified levy for 2013 is $239,468, which is $3,432 less than the preliminary levy set last fall, said city clerk Krista Okerman.
This amount is $11,058 more than 2012’s $228,410 levy. Okerman explained that the increase was largely due to future street projects planned as far ahead as 2015.
Though plans have yet to be finalized, these projects could include adding material to gravel roads and repairing and overlaying some Jenkins streets.
