LOCAL NEWS-
The Crookston Ways and Means Committee met on Monday and approved a preliminary levy for 2016 at a five percent increase, but with the increase in net tax capacity, property taxes for the city will go down.  “The preliminary levy was set at five percent increase and can be revisited in the coming months and reduced,” said Crookston City Finance Director Angel Weasner. “This is an increase of approximately $90,000 because everything goes up including employee salaries.  The increase in tax capacity is at $600,000 to bring us to $3.4 million tax capacity which gives us less tax percent rate which means every home should have a city portion of the tax rate go down with the five percent increase.”
The preliminary levy has to be set by September 14 and the final levy is at December 14 with a Truth in Taxation hearing where residents can being their questions and concerns.
The budget for the city for 2016 is $10,795,216.00 with the levy bringing in $1,890,542.00 and Local government aid at $3,592,006.00.  
 The vote on the levy will go to the council for final approval.
