Budget: Discussion on next year’s tax levy. It was the feeling of the board that they do not want to take advantage of the methods available to raise the levy, such as adding all or a portion of our debt. Their feeling was to keep the levy at the same amount of last year, plus $982 for the new construction adjustment allowed by the state. Hanson made a motion to levy $109,132. Rindahl seconded and the motion carried. We will have our annual Budget Hearing just prior to the November regular board meeting.
