St. Louis County looks for public input on 2018 budget

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MN -

The St. Louis County board is getting ready to set next year's budget, and they want to get your input Thursday.

Earlier this year, the board set the maximum levy at just over $132 million. That's almost a 4.5 half percent increase from this year. 

Factoring in an almost equal increase in the property tax base, the estimated impact is point 5 percent. For the owners of a $150,000 home, the increase would be 84 cents per year on the county portion of their property taxes.

You can weigh in at 7 p.m. at the Duluth courthouse. 

The Board is expected to vote on the final budget at its December 19 meeting.
