Brownton council approves preliminary property tax levy

The Brownton City Council unanimously approved its preliminary property tax levy during its meeting Sept. 3. After deliberation, the council decided a 5 percent increase was sufficient to cover increasing costs for 2020 — an influx of $21,783 over last year.
The council can either leave the levy as is or reduce it, but councilors can’t choose to increase the levy anymore.
“I’m comfortable with 5 (percent) if 5 (percent) covers it,” Councilor Curtis Carrigan said.
