Crow Wing County Board Sets 2021 Budget and Levy
The Crow Wing County Board of Commissioners has increased the property tax levy by 4.97%. The county will collect a total of $41,262,480 dollars from those who own property.
The board voted on the increase 5-0 during Tuesday’s meeting.
“In life, if you can get 90%, I guess that’s pretty damn good,” Commissioner Paul Koering said. “I just want to you to be aware that I don’t agree with everything in there but I agree with a large portion of it, so I gave it a ‘yes’ vote.”
The increase impacts county levy taxpayers, depending on each property.
“I think it raises a good point,” said County Administrator Tim Houle. “If there is not something in there that you don’t like, then you’re not looking closely enough at it. We do not always get everything we want in life, right?”
