Some Becker County residents in Park Rapids School District 309 got sticker shock when they opened their property tax statements this spring.


"When we certified the rate to Becker County we certified it incorrectly so we recertified it and they didn't catch it," said Hubbard County Auditor Pam Heeren.

But Heeren said the county "is making up for what they should have paid last year, they're just paying it this year."
