Next Tuesday, Dec. 22, the Becker County Board is expected to finalize a 2009, payable 2010 property tax levy of just over $17 million. This levy marks an increase of $238,552, or 1.38 percent, over the previous year's levy.


On Tuesday night, the commissioners held a public hearing to receive input on the levy and proposed 2010 county budget. Though attendance was sparse, there were roughly 12-15 people at the hearing.
