City Council approves 2020-21 budget, tax levy after another ‘quiet’ public hearing
Two public hearings didn’t produce any more comments on New Hampton’s 2020-21 budget and tax levy than one public hearing.
Because of a new state law, the city was required to hold two public hearings this year, the second of which was held last Monday just before the City Council approved a budget that, like its first public hearing that was held on March 2, council members received nary a comment.
New Hampton’s proposed tax levy for next year is set for $13.98433 per $1,000 assessed valuation next year, up 7.5 percent from this year’s levy, which was $13.22579 per $1,000 assessed valuation.
