The Pequot Lakes City Council on Tuesday, Sept. 3, adopted a preliminary 2014 tax levy of $1,618,823.
Though that’s an 8.91 percent increase, or $132,391, from the 2013 levy of $1,486,432, Mayor Nancy Adams assured residents the final levy adopted in December will be less than this preliminary levy.
The deadline for cities to adopt preliminary levies is Sept. 15. Preliminary levy amounts cannot increase, but can decrease, after being set.
