The Brown County Board today (TUE) is scheduled to give the final approval to the county’s proposed property tax levy and budget for 2014. The Brown County levy is set to increase by just-over 3% next year. It can not be raised past that point. The levy is based on a draft 2014 county budget of $30.7-million. In other business today, the Brown County Board will consider allowing about 10,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil from a downtown Mankato project to be accepted at the Brown County Landfill. The meeting starts at 9am at the county courthouse in New Ulm.
