The Winona County Board of Commissioners has set Tuesday, November 25th, as the date for its annual "Truth in Taxation" public hearing.
The hearing will give citizens a chance to voice their opinions on the proposed 2015 county budget and proposed property tax levy.
A preliminary levy must be set this month with the final vote coming in December after the public hearing is held . Before then the board can lower the levy but cannot increase it......
Board members are continuing to work on the preliminary budget that currently shows 3-point-4 million dollars more in expenses than anticipated county revenue.
The goal of the board is to come up with a balanced budget for 2015. Work sessions have been held as board members decide how to reach that balanced budget. A number of options are being considered.
