Council raises 2014 preliminary levy $34,000 from 2013 levy
The Breezy Point City Council set its 2014 preliminary levy Tuesday, Sept. 3, for $34,000 higher than the 2013 levy. The decision was made in a 4-1 vote, with council member Otto Schmid opposed.
The total preliminary levy was set at $1,753,080. The levy can go down, but not up, before the final levy is set in December. The city has a five-year history of reducing or keeping a flat final levy.
Council member Tom Lillehei supported an increase in the levy.
