March 12, 2020
The Sutherland Council on Monday March 2 approved it maximum levy for the 2020-2021 budget year, beginning July 1, 2020. The council approved reimbursing the general fund for employees benefits paid from the general fund over several years from the employee benefits fund where dollars have accumulated. The benefits levy had not been imposed for several years, but is included as part of the proposed maximum levy. That levy, in part, accounts for the increase in levy rate, from $10.41588 to $13.38965 per $1000 of taxable property valuation.
