Garrison sanitary district sets 2013 levy


GARRISON — The Garrison, Kathio, West Mille Lacs Lake Sanitary District’s board on Thursday unanimously approved a 2013 levy of $350,000 — lower than the $500,000 levy board members had considered earlier.

The 2013 levy is an increase compared to the 2012 levy of $240,000.

John Schley of Garrison, chair of the board, said money would be transferred out of the district’s savings account to lower the amount that needed to be levied.
