ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The Olmsted County Board met Tuesday morning to discuss the proposal of increasing the 2013 tax levy.
The board approved to adopt a budget that includes a 2.75 percent increase.
Many discussions will still surround the number until it is finalized in December. The proposed percentage that is proposed will be the highest it can go.
"Our budget is about 50 percent levy, and actually over 50 percent other revenues," said Olmsted County Administrator Richard Devlin. "And it takes time to get those other revenues from the various sources."
Once preliminary tax levy numbers are in for the Rochester School District, Olmsted County and the city, an assessor will do a property evaluation.
