Sleepy Eye 2014 Budget & Levy 11 Sep 13

The Sleepy City Council on Tuesday approved a preliminary tax levy for next year that could potentially lower resident’s taxes. The 2014 preliminary Sleepy Eye property tax levy is nearly $40,000 less than this year’s levy of around $1,152,000, a nearly 3.5% decrease. The preliminary budget for Sleepy Eye for 2014 is $3.6-million, an increase of around $141,000 from this year’s budget. Sleepy Eye City Manager Mark Kober calls it “a conservative but doable budget.” The final approval of the budget and levy will come in December.
