On Friday, Feb. 19, Minnesota House Property Tax Division Chair Steve Drazkowski and State Representative Steve Green, R-Fosston, will hold a town hall meeting in Park Rapids to explain what was accomplished last session on the property tax relief front, and to gather feedback from area residents.
The meeting will be held at Northwoods Community Bank, 1200 East First Street in Park Rapids, beginning at 5 p.m.
Last session the Minnesota House approved omnibus taxes legislation that would have eliminated the statewide business property tax for small business owners, cut school district construction levy burdens on farmers in half, and provided over $2 billion in tax relief to hardworking Minnesotans.
That bill awaits full legislative action during the 2016 session, and is expected to be at the top of the priority list for legislators.
Green is encouraging area residents to attend the event and learn more about the approved legislation and to share their property tax stories.
