A preliminary report shows local governments plan to increase property taxes next year.

Here’s how the numbers look locally:

Becker County has set a preliminary 2.5 percent increase, which would bring in $471,300 in new revenue. The county has not yet finished its budget process and it’s not clear how much, if any, of that increase will be implemented.


Otter Tail County has set a 3.7 percent levy increase, which would bring in $1.2 million in new revenue.
