Brainerd City Council: Proposed 2013 tax levy approved


A proposed tax levy that duplicated the one approved in 2012 was before the Brainerd City Council Monday night.

Presented by staff, Council President Mary Koep and Personnel and Finance Committee Chairwoman Bonnie Cumberland, the preliminary levy was set at $3,953,486.

“Our goal was to keep the levy no more than last year (2012),” said Koep. “So we kept that dollar amount in this preliminary levy at the flat dollar rate of last year.”
